It is almost Christmas time and I thought it could be interesting to learn about the different traditions around the globe. The way people celebrate Christmas isn’t the same everywhere and we usually don’t think about the fact that the Christmas traditions aren’t alike worldwide.
Not all Christmas traditions are the same everywhere
Many facets of the holiday traditions vary according to the region. From the diverse names Santa Claus is called, the various menus or even the different Christmas customs, the traditions are tied to our beliefs and the meaning of the Christmas season remains the same; celebrating the nativity story.
