What are the weird Christmas traditions around the world?
The Witch’s arrival in Italy:
A witch named La Befana arrives in households on the night of 5th January to deliver sweet treats and gifts to children. She expects to find the Baby Jesus she was looking for on the night when the Three Wise Men arrived at Bethlehem’s manger.
Do appease Nisse in Denmark:
Nisse is a gnome who seeks to be fed. Households in Denmark must leave him on Christmas Eve with sweet rice porridge (risengrød), and if they do, in the coming year, he will be nice and bring them a great fortune. It is assumed that he will play pranks in the house and make life difficult if they do not please him.
First, you treat kindly and then beat him:
That’s a funny summary of the tradition of Catalan Poop Log in Spain. A little wooden guy carved by hand and made of a stick and art supplies cared from the 8th to 24th December when kids give him nuts, berries, and shield him for warmth in a blanket. But on Christmas Eve, they beat him with sticks while singing a traditional song. They raise the blanket after the beating to announce that the log has pooped a stack of candy.
Hide your Broomsticks, or they will fly away:
In Norway, a unique Christmas tradition is that all broomsticks are hidden out of view on Christmas Eve. The Norwegians believe that wicked witches and ghosts will come out the night before Christmas, and if broomsticks are to be found, they will take them and fly them across the sky.
Maybe this is why 1/10 people in Iceland have published a book:
A genius Christmas Eve tradition in Iceland is Jolabokaflod, meaning “Christmas Book Flood.” Icelandic families share brand new books with one another every year on Christmas Eve and spend the rest of the evening comfortably indoors while reading. When the paper was one of the few items in ample supply, this tradition came from WWII and made books a feasible gift choice.
Where and when Christmas celebration became a thing?
Everyone knows Jesus was born in Jerusalem. But when and where Christmas became a celebratory occasion for the first time? Let’s answer this, then –
The Christmas celebration began around 336 AD in Rome. Still, it never became a major Christian festival until about the ninth century. Many Christmas traditions originated in Germany and eventually spread to other parts of the world, especially England and the United States.
Why do we give presents at Christmas?
We spend tons of money on Christmas gifts. The more disturbing fact is that according to a survey last year, around $15.2 Billion was spent on unwanted gifts in the US alone (Source: finder.com). That’s why we (giftideasclub) strive to provide you the most unique and creative presents that the other person can’t regret even if they don’t seem to like you.
Anyway, coming to the question, the reason for sharing presents on Christmas is to remind us of the gifts of three wise men offered to Jesus: Frankincense, Gold, and Myrrh. Even Christmas is celebrated in remembrance of one of the best gifts given to us by god around 2000 years ago – The birth of Jesus.
What is the relation b/w Christmas and Xmas?
Please don’t blame the youngsters who are so lazy in typing that they started using Xmas for saying Christmas. We can blame their laziness for many other issues, but this time they are innocent. Because Xmas originated long before we can think of.
The letter that looks like an X in (Xmas) is the Greek letter chi/X (pronounced ‘kye’ – rhymes with ‘eye’) in the Greek language and alphabets, which is the first letter of the Greek term for Christ (Christos). In the Greek alphabet ‘chi’ and ‘rho,’ the early church used the first two letters of Christos to create a monogram (symbol) to represent the name of Jesus. This appears to be an X with a small p on the top: ☧.
But remember that even though Xmas means Christmas, still the pronunciation is not Xmas, it is Christmas. So yeah, if you find your kids saying Xmas, then you can correct them by telling them the right pronunciation.
(Important) What are the COVID-19 guidelines to follow during Holidays in 2020?
The full guidelines are available on the government’s official website – cdc.gov which was last updated on Nov.27, 2020. Below we have a summary of points to remember from these guidelines –
- First and foremost, quarantine yourself or guide people to quarantine who –
- Check the infection rates at all the guests’ locality before inviting them. Another good idea would be to host the gathering outdoors (and make sure it is not crowded outside).
- Encourage other parties to bring their food and beverages with themselves. Otherwise, make sure to take necessary precautions like limiting people in the kitchen, serving food while wearing masks, proper sanitization, etc.
- Make sure to read these guidelines before Travel during the holidays.
