Traditional Christmas Around the World

Thanks to Christina for this great and well researched post 😃

Lives Our Ancestors Left Behind

What is the Traditional Christmas?

Growing up in the United States I thought that the rest of the world celebrated Christmas the same way we do, but as I grew up I eventually realized that everyone, not just people in my own country but all over the world do have their own traditions. In 2010, I spent most of the year (July 2010-January 2011) in the United Kingdom. When I was there I learned that, even though many Americans are descended from the British, we both have our own traditions as well. When I started getting to know people from different cultures around the world, such as Germany, Finland and France; through Facebook and other social media, I also learned that they too have their own traditions. I will start this post sharing what many Americans do, for those that aren’t familiar with our traditions.
