Holiday Fun Facts

Use these gems to strike up a festive conversation at the next holiday party
  • There are 3 towns in the U.S. that are named Santa Claus. They are in Georgia, Arizona, and Indiana.
  • If you received all the gifts from the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” you would have 364 presents.
  • Around 17.5 million oily donuts (sufganiyot) are eaten in Israel during Hanukkah  to commemorate the miracle of oil. (Not a good time to start a diet!)
  • 28 percent of Americans re-gift their Christmas presents. What's the worst gift you ever received? Did you re-gift?
