It’s Christmas Time Again!

It's time to decorate houses and offices with Christmas trees, tinsel, and mistletoe; time to dress up as Santa Claus and give presents to friends and family; time to celebrate, sing festive songs, and eat Christmas pudding.
Christmas is one of the only festivals to be celebrated globally, but each region and country has its own set of traditions and customs marking this special time of year.
In this post, we present a variety of typical Christmas celebrations from around the world.
How do you celebrate Christmas? Comment and share with us.


Merry Christmas to you all!
