We're not sure about you, but Team MyDaily have always wanted to know the exact definition of a white Christmas, how big was THE biggest Christmas pudding of all time and which country calls Santa Babbo Natale. Take a look at this nifty (and rather festive) pic and discover all the Xmas facts you wish you'd known for years.

Can you believe that Christmas was actually abolished in England for eight whole years? All we can say is we're glad we weren't around in the 1650s. How about sending 62,924 season's greetings? Here's us thinking we had a lot of stamps to buy.

After discovering that a white Christmas is officially defined by a single snowflake falling at any point throughout the 24 hours of Christmas day, we reckon we might have one this year.

Team MyDaily will totally be listing off these fun facts over our pretty big (but not 7,231 pounds big) Christmas pud.

With the Christmas break just round the corner, we'll be climbing into our onesies and refusing to get out of them for a week. Why not join us?
