Every state is different. Somewhere, Christmas is a Christian holiday, when you go to church, sing songs about God, and pray. For Americans, it’s a time of decorations, and I mean decorations with a big D. They spend so much money on plastic reindeers, lighting chains, candles, and mistletoes. Yeah, sure, I love the atmosphere too, but according to research, Americans can spend $230 on average just on decorations for the holidays. Hello, I could’ve bought a new mobile for that. In Japan, they just order Kentucky Fried Chicken. Like I’ve said, it depends on where you live. Let’s take a look at some cool, or for someone weird Christmas traditions around the world. Maybe you’ll find your country!
Quick, hide your broom!
In Norway, hiding the broom is a very old tradition. It’s dated to when people believed in witches and were thinking that Christmas Eve is the time when all the magical creatures come out. So to keep their broom safe, they were hiding it in the most guarded place, so no witch will steal it. Poor witches, nothing to ride on, huh?
Just walking to the church is boring, why not use rollerbladers?
Yes, you’ve heard me right. On Christmas Eve, in Venezuela, you can skate to your church. They even close the roads, so no car would hurt you.
Don’t forget your coat and build some goat!
In Sweden, they have a pretty rare tradition. Yule Goat has been a Swedish Christmas symbol for eons, but in 1966, they decided to build a giant one by using straws. And now, it’s an every-year tradition. It weighs about 3,6 tons, and believe me, it’s huge.
Turkey and mashed potatoes? Nah, we want a KFC bucket.
In Japan, they replace those giant long-prepared meals with fast food. Well, it has many positives. Firstly, you don’t have to be stressed out because of cooking. Also, you can spend more time with others, not just be stuck in the kitchen. And lastly, it’s so tasty. Don’t tell me it’s not, you would be lying. And who’s lying is on the Santas list between the Naughty Kids. And before Christmas, it’s not worthy, you know?
