#Blogmas Day 22 πŸŽ„πŸŽ‰

Hii everyone! Hope you’re all doing great and are having a great week and day! It’s 3 days to Christmas!

Every Christmas, everyone follows different and unique traditions which makes Christmas in every house very special! Here are 2 facts each about Christmas Traditions in 3 different countries!

The United Kingdom

1. Silver Coin in Christmas Pudding: In Britain, a silver coin is hidden in the delicious Christmas Pudding dessert and it is said that it brings luck to those who find it!

2. Boxing Day: Boxing Day is a public holiday the day after Christmas and there are many theories on why it is so!

The United States of America

1. Putting up lights: Americans love to decorate the outside of their houses with beautiful lights. They often also decorate statues of Santa and his much adored reindeer!

2. Cookies and Milk: A majority of young kids leave out a plate of cookies and a glass of milk just in case Santa gets thirsty and hungry on his trip delivering presents!

Spain

1. No Santa: Yes! You read that right, there’s no Santa in Spain. Instead, they get presents from the Three Wise Men!

2. El DΓ­a de los Santos Inocentes: While the rest of the world plays pranks on each other on April Fool’s Day, in Spain, it’s on December Fool’s Day!

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post! See you all tomorrow for the next one!! Have a great day ahead!

  1. Haha yes, I loved reading this and I would certainly like to get to the bottom of why there is a “Boxing Day” immediately after one of the most peaceful days of the year πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. And the tradition of kids leaving out milk and cookies for Santa just in case he gets hungry, was hilarious to me; it is definitely not a tradition that I had known about before haha

      1. Yeah, that could be totally true haha. I was like you and not sure what the purpose of the day was since I had never looked into its purpose. I just saw it as one big global holiday after Christmas day, that may have some kind of loose relation to the “sport” of “boxing” πŸ˜‚.

        The thought of boxing presents would have never occurred to me because I generally expected that all things related to the idea of Christmas and presents would atleast occur a day or two *before Christmas instead of the day after, and then from that point on, most attention would shift to old-years and ringing in the new year. Then again, the whole entire month of December overall is considered the season of Christmas πŸŽ„β­πŸ˜„.

        But after looking into it, your perspective is actually correct. I still need to do more research but apparently, it’s designated to be a “shopping holiday” of sorts lol. Sorry about the long post, I just found the subject interest.

      1. Haha exactly, If those kids don’t get the bestest most awesome gifts from Santa for displaying such kindness and compassion, I don’t know what will; it’s very adorable πŸ˜„πŸŽπŸŽ„

        Yes I loved reading it, as well as your lovely poem my friend. You have done a tremendous job with the Blogmas series and I really really respect you dearly.

  2. It is interesting isn’t it? Oh yeah, I remember once my friends told me it was a whole thing to make people spend money. But these little things give you so much satisfaction when you find out the reason!
    No problem! I absolutely loved your comment! What a great interaction it has been!

    1. Yes it surely is. And you summed it up perfectly when you said that finding out the real reason for things gives you more satisfaction πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜„.

      Your friends are speaking wise words. I don’t doubt that Boxing Day started out with very good intentions but then somewhere along the line became massively exploited lol

      Thank you very much, I am humbled by your kindness. I cherished our interaction as well; I was not expecting to learn anything new today but I did and I am happy about that, so kudos for correcting me because I was totally lost before on the matter but now i’m found hahaa
