So lets begin about some weird traditions some people have;
Christmas with the KFC man:
So even though Japan don’t actually practice Christmas as often as other places do, some Japanese people take it very seriously, but now with a Sunday roast, with a bucket of KFC Chicken. Some people in Japan, actually book their bucket of chicken so far in advance so they make sure they have it ready for the big day!
Keeping the broom at bay:
Now here is one that I didn’t know, the Norwegians believe that around christmas the witches come back, especially on christmas eve, so to make sure no evil spirits can ‘take flight’ they hide the brooms.
The Spiders Web:
Ukrainian Christmas trees are traditionally decorated, but with one specific ornament. A spiders web, to represent poorer people of Ukraine, the story comes from; A poor Ukrainian family didn’t have enough money to decorate their tree, one day a family woke up to find a spider had decorated the whole tree in a beautiful web.
Roller Skate Season:
In Caracas, the capital of Venezuela it is very usual for people in the capital to start the day roller skating, people take this so seriously that people won’t drive on the day, so that people can roller skating around.
Who wants a pickle?
US households will often adorn their Christmas trees with decorative pickles, now I don’t know if all families do this, some keep up the tradition some don’t. I’m interested in finding out if this is true, if you are american do you do this?
