Christmas Reading

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. I love the smell of Christmas trees, the sparkling lights, Christmas markets… I also love all the traditions that are associated with this season.

In short, I love Christmas and I’ve written a lot about it over the years. So I’ve put together a list of my Christmas articles that I thought you might enjoy.

In the Western World, many Christmas traditions are fairly similar from country to country. However, each nation also has some customs that are particular to it.

Happy Christmas

British Christmas Traditions

Joyeux Noël

French Christmas Traditions

Feliz Navidad

Barcelona

But Barcelona, Spain takes the prize for a really strange Christmas tradition in Happy Crappy Christmas.

12 Days of Christmas

And Christmas doesn’t end on the 25th of December… We still have 12 more days. The 12 days of Christmas begin on Christmas day and end on Epiphany (January 6th) which is considered the day that the wise men showed up at Jesus’ manger.

  1. I am sorry that you are not well, when, as you say, you could be out enjoying the Christmas Season. It is so different in Australia, but interesting that we follow the English traditions in the main, however we have a lot more evening outside events, taking advantage of the warm, longer days. Hope you are well again very soon.
    Best wishes

    1. Hi Paula,
      Thanks for the well wishes. I’m starting to feel better so I might get a little holiday spirit in yet.
      I’d be interested to know what Christmas in Australia is like. Does Santa wear a warm red suit or something more suitable to the climate? What kind of scenes are on your Christmas cards? I assume it’s not the snow or fireside scenes that we are used to here. How have the Australians adapted the holiday to a summer season? Just curious…
      Wishing you very Happy Holidays!
      Margo
