It’s Christmas!! HO Ho HO, you heard it right Santa is on its way! Christmas is a festival of joy and celebrated around the world, In this post I thought to take you guys around the world to see how Christmas is celebrated.


Christmas In China 

In China, Christmas is called Sheng Dan Jiah which means the Holy birth festival. Like in any other family Christmas tree is decorated with the spirit of joy and fun and the Chinese know that very well, they decorate the Christmas tree with beautiful lanterns, flowers and red paper chains which symbolise happiness. The Chinese call Christmas tree “The Tree of Light”. 


Christmas In England 

The English are known for their great celebrations, the weather is cold and wet perhaps the best weather for the holiday season. For a typical English family Christmas eve is very busy, when I say busy I mean in a fun way! They kind of busy which everyone likes! They spend their day packing presents, baking Christmas cookies and hanging stocking over the fireplace. 


Christmas In France 


The French have their own beautiful way for everything and that is what makes French Christmas celebrations more exciting! In France, Christmas eve is a special time, Church bells ringing and the sound of French Carols which are known as noels can be heard everywhere. 
People usually enjoy a wonderful feast and they like to end the feast with Buche De Noel which is a rich buttercream filled cake, shaped and frosted to look like a yule log.

The Germans have a tradition of making advent wreath of fir or pine branches that has four colour candles which are lit during Christmas season. Germans are also famous for making a spicy cookie called Lebkuchen.
