Transcript: Only 1 per cent of Japanese people believe in Christ. Most Japanese people decorate their stores and homes with evergreens during Christmas. They enjoy giving each other gifts, and this is the part they celebrate. They have a Buddhist monk called Hotei-osho who acts like Santa Claus. He brings presents to each house and leaves them for the children. Some think he has eyes in the back of his head, so children try to behave like he is nearby. Christmas in Russia In my family we celebrate Christmas by putting up a Christmas tree and everybody is around decorating it and drinking hot chocolate. We dont do the Santa Clause thing because my parent always told me, why should we work all year to get yall presents and give the credit to a man in a red suit. We all get together on Christmas Day and go to church that morning, then we get a time together and everybody come around and eat and exchange gifts, and tell the true meaning of Christmas. In the traditional Russian Christmas, special prayers are said and people fast, sometimes for 39 days, until January 6th Christmas Eve, when the first evening star appears in the sky. On Christmas Day, hymns and carols are sung. People gather in churches which have been decorated with the usual Christmas trees or Yelka, flowers and colored lights. Babushka is a traditional Christmas figure who distributes presents to children. Her name means grandmother and the legend is told that she declined to go with the wise men to see Jesus because of the cold weather. Africans singing We Wish You A Merry Christmas Christmas is celebrated throughout the African continent by Christian communities large and small. There are approximately 350 million Christians in Africa. On Christmas day carols are sung from Ghana on down to South Africa. Meats are roasted, gifts are exchanged and family visits made. The Coptic Christians in Ethiopia and Egypt celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December in their calendar, which is the 7th of January for most of the rest of us. Kwanzaa is not celebrated in Africa, as it's an African-American holiday.

Transcript: This prezi shows the different customs and traditions celebrated at Christmas from around the world. On Christmas Eve in America, people leave Christmas cookies out for Santa Claus. Sometimes, people will open one gift on Christmas Eve. On Christmas day, people of all ages will open presents and enjoy the day with their families. It is tradition to leave mince pies and a bottle of Guinness out as a snack for Santa. Lighted candles are placed in windows on Christmas Eve, as a guide that Joseph and Mary might be looking for shelter. The candles are usually red in color, and decorated with sprigs of holly. And they say... "Nollaig Shona Dhuit," or "Nodlaig mhaith chugnat" Another country is.. Australia! ! ! These are their traditions: Australians surround themselves with Christmas Bush, a native plant which has little red flowered leaves. They too say, "Merry Christmas!" (but they say it with an Australian accent:) Next... Is the country of Canada. In Canada the traditional Christmas dinner is roast turkey with vegetables and sauce. For dessert it is rich, fruity Christmas pudding with brandy sauce. Mince pies, pastry cases filled with a mixture of chopped dried fruit. So now we travel to Germany. Germans make beautiful gingerbread houses and cookies. The German Christmas tree pastry, Christbaumgeback, is a white dough that can be molded into shapes and baked for tree decorations. In Germany they hang up advent wreaths of Holly with four red candles in the center. They light one candle each Sunday and last on Christmas Eve. Children count the days until Christmas using an Advent calendar. They open one window each day and find a Christmas picture inside. And they say... "Fröhliche Weihnachten" So now, we'll see how they celebrate Christmas in Paris, France... French children set out their shoes in hopes that le petit Jesus will fill them during the night with small gifts. Another name for Christmas Day is Twelfth Day. It is the last of the Twelve Days of Christmas, which used to be one long holiday. It was the last night of the Feast of Fools before the Lord of Misrule had to give up his crown and become themselves once again. And as they say in French, "Joyeux Noel" And my final stop is... Christmas in Russia!!! Babushka is a traditional Christmas figure who distributes presents to children. Her name means grandmother and the legend is told that she declined to go with the wise men to see Jesus because of the cold weather. However, she regretted not going and set off to try and catch up, filling her basket with presents. She never found Jesus, and that is why she visits each house, leaving toys for good children. In the traditional Russian Christmas, special prayers are said and people fast, sometimes for 39 days, until January 6th Christmas Eve, when the first evening star in appears in the sky. Then begins a twelve course supper in honor of each of the twelve apostles - fish, beet soup or Borsch, cabbage stuffed with millet, cooked dried fruit and much more. And of course, as they say... "Pozdrevlyayu s prazdnikom Rozhdestva is Novim Godom" Thank You. Have a Merry Christmas! "Merry Christmas!" And they say, "merry christmas" as well! The warm weather allows Australians to enjoy a tradition which commenced in 1937. Carols by Candlelight is held every year on Christmas Eve, where tens of thousands of people gather in the city of Melbourne to sing their favorite Christmas songs. The evening is lit by as many candles singing under a clean cut night sky. The sky with its Southern Cross stars is like a mirror. Sydney and the other capital cities also enjoy Carols in the weeks leading up to Christmas. So next we have Ireland... This first country is the one we live in... So we say... Christmas Around the World! America...

Transcript: photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli The Christmas season in Italy goes on for about three weeks total and starting at about eight days before Christmas referred as the Novena. During this period children go around by house singing carols or Christmas poems. And after they go and sing the carols or Christmas poems they get money to buy some presents. In the other parts shepherds go into the villages and play Christmas songs. On December 6th the preparations often begin. Most of the people spend evenings baking cakes that are mostly spiced, cookies, and making decorations or presents. Most of the little kids leave their letters on their windowsills for Christkind which is a make believe character that delivers gifts. In some parts of Germany people believe that Christkind sends a messenger on Christmas Eve that looks almost like Santa Claus which is a make believe character that was born in the US.
