Merry Christmas! Whether you’re spending the holiday with loved ones or friends, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. And of course, that means it’s also a great time to share meaningful and funny memes for the holiday. Here are some of the best, including cats, fun holiday memes, and a selection of Baby Yoda Christmas memes.
Some Great Memes Feature Cats
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without some cat memes.
Here are some facts about Christmas.
Many people celebrate the holiday for religious reasons, including a commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ. No, Jesus wasn’t actually born on December 25. But this is the date that Christians have chosen to remember His birth.
Of course, it’s always fun to learn some random Christmas facts too while you’re viewing memes. Did you know that the first artificial Christmas trees were made in Germany with goose feathers that were dyed green? We’ve come a long way since then.
About two billion Christmas cards are sent a year, some say. But now we also send e-cards and social media greetings.
And every present from the Twelve Days of Christmas song would equal 364 presents (that is, if you count 12 partridges total and so on.) Interestingly, the 12 days of Christmas actually begin on Christmas Day and last until January 6, known as Epiphany or the day when the Three Kings brought gifts to Jesus. Wouldn’t it be fun if we celebrated Christmas for 12 days starting December 25 rather than just one?
Other Memes Feature Baby Yoda
And no Christmas meme story would be complete without Baby Yoda.
Here are some more fun facts about Christmas too.
Some say that in the Twelve Days of Christmas song, the partridge in a pear tree symbolizes Christ, with the two turtledoves symbolizing the Old and New Testaments. Snopes says this isn’t correct.
Fun fact: reindeer shed their antlers around Christmas time. So if you see reindeer with antlers, they’re likely female.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the tallest Christmas tree cut was a 221-foot Douglas Fir. It was at the Northgate Shopping Center in Seattle, Washington in 1950. Here are some more fun records.
The largest Christmas stocking is 168 feet 5.65 inches in length and 70 feet 11.57 inches in width. It was made by a volunteer organization in Italy on January 5, 2011. The event was for charity. The stocking was filled with balloons with sweets.
This Baby Yoda meme might be the cutest:
