Do you know how they celebrate Christmas around the world?
You have got to love Christmas if you know about how it is celebrated in different parts of the world! Christmas in countries like Afghanistan, Albania, and Algeria is different than the way Christmas is celebrated in countries like The Bahamas, Bahrain, and Bangladesh! Christmas traditions from Cabo Verde, Cambodia, and Cameroon are fun but so are the Christmas traditions in countries like Denmark, Djibouti, and Dominica! Some countries focus on the birth, life, death, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Other countries take a more secular approach, mainly focusing on Santa Claus, his happy elves, and his prancing reindeer! Some parts of the world celebrate Christmas in the snow.... What we would call a “white Christmas”. Other parts of the world get Christmas during the summertime! Places like California get to celebrate Christmas in the winter season but it still feels like summer! Different places and different cultures of people choose to celebrate the holidays in vastly different ways! When it comes to decor, traditions, foods, and more, each country has its own way of doing things! Countries like Ecuador, Egypt, and El Salvador are bound to celebrate a little bit differently than countries like Fiji, Finland, and France! Then there are awesome countries like Gabon, The Gambia, and Georgia that might compare holiday traditions to countries like Haiti, Honduras, and Hungary! There are so many countries in the world and some of the countries on this planet do not even acknowledge or celebrate Christmas at all! We aren’t worried there though… just focused right now on the countries who do celebrate and enjoy such a festive holiday!
