Transcript: A wreath came from the BC times. People used to celebrate Christmas as the birth of god. The wreath came from Europe. They used to give their gods boughs of holy which is represented in the wreath. PRESENTS AT CHRISTMAS We give presents at Christmas as a reminder of the gift god gave us, Jesus. This can also be traced back to the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Candy canes they were originally one straight bit of candy. They were later bent at the top to look like a shepherds stick. The shepherds stick is in a lot of bible stories. The candy cane originated in Europe. Christmas tree decorations in the early years of decorating Christmas trees were mainly food like cookies and candy canes, this pays a part to the tradition. The Wreath Those were three Christmas traditions, here are some pictures. Santa came from Saint Nicholas, who sold what he owned and gave money to the needy and the poor. Santa gives presents to the children of the world and is the most popular Christmas icon. Santa has only been called Santa for 200 yrs and before then he was Saint Nicholas. The first mention of Santa Claus was in a New York news paper in 1773. Candy canes Template by Missing Link Images from Shutterstock.com Santa
Transcript: remember... Enjoy your Christmas starts within Ideas See you guys some where else! Increase your Dear KA, This year I'm in Scotland and its Christmas. Scots don't really celebrate Christmas because In Scotland the church of the country doesn't think that Christmas is a good idea because it is too much festivity. So we did most of their celebrations on New Years Eve which they call Hogmany. Bannock is the name of the kind of oat cake which Mums and Dads use to give kids on New Years Eve . We made a big bonfire and danced around to bagpipe music. I hope to come back soon, from Scott Whatever you find hard....

Nicolas Day.) Everyone was very excited. My family is going to have a big feast. Most people in Germany grew a tree but we bought one instead. We did not place decorations though. It's feast day we ate different things than the families, they ate. Suckling pig, macaroni salad and lots more. Our dad and mum locked up a room on Christmas eve, then at midnight they unlocked it like the German families did. We saw parcels on tables the Christmas. Most trees decorated with white dough, nuts, cookies, cars, angels and also family treasures ( But ours was plain green. ) We had Christollen, it was delicious! It was loaves with nuts and raisins. The naughty children get a lot of twigs ( Guess how I know... My brothers got them! XD). The good children get candy. In the afternoon boys dress up as kings. Overall I loved it 10\10!

We didn't but it was still beautiful >^<. On Christmas night we sang Christmas carols happily together. There is a god named Hoteiosho he takes the place of Santa and gives gifts to children. But only 1% of japanese people believe in Christ, so they get gifts from Santa instead. Some people visit sick people in hospital on Christmas day.

There is a lot of tinsel and glitter everywhere. I like it a lot here, even though temperatures range from 30-40 degrees Celsius (because it is summer). We had a picnic lunch on Bondi Beach.

Hard work all will share A Very Merry Christmas all over the world Dear KA I'm in Holland right now and its Christmas. In Holland the kids call Santa Sinterklaas or Sinterklas. On Christmas Eve kids fill their shoes with hay and sugar for Santa's horses. Black Peter is Santa's helper, I think that is very weird that they do not have elves. Christmas is a religious time for the dutch. In the morning I went to the church with my family. In the afternoon we sat around the Christmas tree singing carols and telling stories. Christmas is on December the 5th which is also their feast day. Santa sails from Spain where kids think he lives. I thought he lived in the South Pole!!!! Early in the morning people blow horns over water wells to chase evil spirits away,(It woke me up really early.) I think that having Christmas in Holland was really fun. Merry Christmas From Leyla.

Transcript: AND IT CAME TO PASS IN THOSE DAYS THAT THERE WENT OUT A DECREE FROM CAESAR AUGUSTUS,. CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS TADLE OF CONTENTS BY OLIVIA.D BIBLICAL PASSAGE Christmas preparations often begin before December 1st. Many Germans set aside special evenings for baking spiced cakes and cookies, and making gifts and decorations. Little dolls of fruit are traditional Christmas toys. Children leave letters on their windowsills for Christkind, a winged figure dressed in white robes and a golden crown who distributes gifts. Sometimes the letters are decorated with glue and sprinkled with sugar to make them sparkle. 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. On December 6 is Nikolaustag, St. Claus day. A shoe or boot is left outside the door on Dec.5 with hopes the following morning you find presents, if you were good - or, unfortunately a rod if you had been bad. Christmas Eve we go to my Dad's side of the Family and have a great dinner. We usually play "Tombola" which is Bingo. We open our presents all together and have fun. On Christmas day we wake up early to open our presents from our parents and Santa. We go to Christmas Mass then come home and spend time together. Then we go over to my Mom's side of the family for a big Christmas dinner. MY CHRISTMAS POEM TOP 10 Christmas movies CHRISTMAS IN GERMANY The decorations are red the stockings are hung.
