Christmas

It is hard to imagine a Christmas without robins, they have become a symbol of festivities. Although thy are present all year, they are more noticeable in winter. The robin has a religious significance too. There is a legind that the robin got its red breast when it was pierced by a thorn from Jesus' crow as he hung on the cross. But a more likely reason for them becoming so synonymous with Christmas is that when early Christmas cards were produced in the eighteenth century, they were delivered by postmen wearing bright red coats. They were known as 'robins' or 'redbreasts' and so the bird on the Christmas card represented the postman who delivered it.
