Day 8: Share a local Christmas tradition in your town or country

UHMMM. I don’t know of any specific traditions in my town. And I just realized that I am quite ignorant of Christmas traditions in other countries versus traditions in the U.S. So instead of sharing my traditions, I researched some other countries’ traditions!


Celebrates Christmas on January 6th! (Sorry about the flag, the top stripe is white! Unfortunately, white=camouflage)


Children leave out mince pies and a bottle of Guinness on Christmas Eve. I guess he’s gotta keep warm somehow…


In the capital of Venezuela, Caracus, the streets are closed on Christmas Day so people can roller skate to church!


Apparently many families have a traditional dinner of KFC in Japan. WHAT. Okay, that is definitely some U.S. marketing at work.


In France a traditional dessert called buche de Noel is served – a buttercream filled cake frosted to look like a Yule log. THIS SOUNDS SO GOOD.

I’d love to hear some of your Christmas traditions!! If you have any you’d like to share please leave them in the comments :)

I’ll write again soon. Until then, keep reading!
