Also, check out http://www.the-north-pole.com/ for Christmas traditions around the world.
For example, did you know that:
-In Iraq, families burn thorn bushes for good luck on Christmas Eve?
-In Norway, Christmas gifts were historically delivered by Julebukk, the "Christmas Buck"?
-In Venezuela, families roller-skate to Christmas Eve services in the city of Caracas? Streets are closed to allow for safe skating...
-In the Czech Republic, St. Nicholas is said to descend to Earth from a golden rope, accompanied by an angel and a devil.
-Poinsettia's come from Mexico, and legend has it that they grew their star-shaped flowers after a young boy brought the plants as an offering to his local church nativity.
Merry Christmas Eve, to all!
