How did Christmas come to be what it is now? Well when the early English settlers came to Canada, they celebrated Christmas their own ways, until there was a more diverse population. Neighbors would share traditions with each other and make the holidays more festive in a different way. The many cultures of people in Canada and Oshawa have influenced what we know to be Christmas today. Happy Holidays!
