CHristmas traditions from around the world.

One of the things I love about blogging is getting to “meet” people from all over the world. I also love hearing about unique Christmas traditions that are different from my own, as I love Christmastime. I’ve seen enough of the world to know that I’d be delusional to think that everyone celebrates Christmas and has the same Christmas traditions as we do here in the States. Did you know, for example, that the Japanese LOVE Kentucky Fried Chicken? Personally, I’d pass but they’re crazy about it. According to this infographic they even have it for Christmas dinner! Have you ever heard of Sinterklaas or his sidekick Black Pete? No? Neither had I. But, apparently, they’re a hit in the Netherlands. And, when Santa visits Ireland, he’d better come thirsty because there will be a pint of Guiness waiting for him (I bet parents have fun drinking for Santa).
