Bizarre Christmas traditions from around the world

What a creepy image to refer to Christmas, right? Christmas is that lovely time of the year when everything turns red & white, we all set up a colorful Christmas tree at home, and families gather for love and presents, waiting for Santa Claus to come… with more presents! December is a time for love, share and to be thankful. That’s for sure how you all picture this Holiday, right? But there are some Christmas traditions from around the world that you may not be aware of and that will shock you.

Christmas traditions from around the world

Have you ever wonder how do other countries celebrate Christmas? Of course, there are differences between American and European traditions. For instance: Did you know that one of the Holiday traditions in Mexico is that the kids get presents from little Baby Jesus (delivered by Santa Claus) on Christmas Eve and then from Three Kings on January 6th? And that we keep the Christmas tree and all the decoration till the end of January? (That’s not really a Mexican tradition, is just that we get lazy during the Holidays) Or that in Austria instead of Santa coming to town, there’s a creepy demon called Krampus that punishes kids that had misbehaved through the year? How bizarre is that?!
