Most non-triathletes donít realize this, but Christmas was started in 1978 as a way to celebrate the first Ironman race. After the first year it was moved from February to December to give participants a chance to recover from the race before the celebration. When the race was moved to October it was decided that Christmas should remain in December, as it had become a mainstream holiday at that point. Now you can celebrate in the true spirit of the holiday by decorating your tree with the Bay Six Triathlete Christmas Tree Ornament. Itís glass, so be careful with it!
