10 unusual Christmas traditions from around the world

From tinsel to Brussels sprouts, Christmas is just one wacky tradition after another. In celebration of these festive eccentricities, we’ve rounded up ten of the most unusual customs from across the globe...

1) Germany and Austria

The star of a new Hollywood horror film, the Krampus is Father Christmas' scary friend, a devilish creature who punishes naughty children throughout the festive period. The mythical beast, which stems from Austro-Bavarian German-speaking Alpine folklore, is hairy with hooves and large horns.


2) Catalonia

There are a couple of strange Catalonian traditions, one of which is the caga tió or “defecating log”. In the fortnight leading up to Christmas, a grinning creature is created out of a small log and placed on the dining room table. The log must be fed every day with fruit, nuts, and sweets, before – on Christmas Eve – it’s beaten with sticks, excreting its goodies. Another fecal-themed Catalonian custom is a caganer, a small defecating figurine, which traditionally appears in nativity scenes.

3) Caracas

In Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, revellers travel to early-morning church services on roller skates throughout the festive period. The roads are even closed off specially.

4) Japan

Christmas isn’t a national holiday in Japan but that doesn’t stop a large number of people celebrating the festival. Santa Claus, or Santa Kurohsu, is said to have eyes in the back of his head to keep an eye on naughty children, while Japanese Christmas cake is usually made up of sponge, whipped cream, and strawberries.

5) Portugal

In Portugal, families set extra places at the dining table on Christmas morning for deceased relatives. The practice is called “consoda” and is thought to bring the family good luck.

6) Czech Republic

Over Christmas, Czech women use a clever trick to predict their love lives for the coming year. Unmarried women stand with their backs to their front doors and toss shoes over their shoulders. If a shoe lands with its toe pointing towards the door, the woman will get hitched within the next 12 months.

7) Norway

In Norway, it’s thought Christmas Eve coincides with the arrival of evil spirits and witches. To protect themselves, families hide all their brooms before they go to bed.

8) Ukraine

Ukrainian Christmas trees are traditionally decorated with a fake spider and web. The custom, which is said to bring good luck, stems from an old wives' tale about a poor woman who could not afford to decorate her tree. She woke up on Christmas morning to find a spider had covered it in a glittering web.

9) Greenland

If you think sprouts are bad, you should try one of Greenland’s Christmas delicacies. Mattak - raw whale skin with blubber - is one. Another is kiviak, which is when an auk (a small bird) is wrapped in seal skin, buried for several months, and then eaten once decomposed.

10) India

Only about 2.3 per cent of the population of India are Christians, but that still works out as about 25 million people. The day is celebrated with midnight mass and present-giving, but in the absence of fir trees or pine trees, banana trees and mango tree are decorated instead.

I'm well aware, it just seems odd that a country that is most likely primarily Christian would eat a lamb which is a symbol of Jesus on a festival that is usually celebrated among Christians for that same savior's birth.

Why do you so hate the church so much, Syntax? You seem to hate them more than any angry angsty atheist.

Hate? How do U conclude I hate the Church?

I enjoy the pageantry of Christmas and 4Sure I love attending Greek Festivals and always visit and even on occasion attend a Greek Church and on Occasions even Midnite Mass in Catholic Church. Betting I have probably been to more Church services than U - Hummmmm do U even attend a Church?

I think the Tooth Fairy Story/Fairytail/ is nice and the Jesus stuff makes for a good story as well. Bible stuff like not even acknowledge dinosaurs and somehow dem 1st Jews who rote the roots of Bible did that with Earth starting only 5400 years ago is somewhat off base by Eons but hey who is counting

Hate? Hell No - I Luv a good story and Si-Fi fits in with Bible stuff.

I only assume so because you used to refer to Jesus as "Jesus the Jew" in a more derogatory fashion. My apologies are in order.

I do the Jesus the Jew mostly as a reminder and mostly to people who hate dem Jews.

I sure do luv being derogatory to many who follow a religion cause well just because it wood take me a book to X~Splain all of why I find it so silly.
My next door neighbor the Self Relationship Church, they have statues to give credit to everything from Jesus to Buddha and they are really nice people that often not so pleased when my Bar-B-Q aromas drift their way.

That isn't what they eat for Christmas though.

They have a special Christmas menu which you pre-order your meal from, months in advance, and it has fancier than normal meals on there. The basic KFC stuff you can get any time is meant for poor people and Americans who are visiting Japan, a KFC christmas meal is very expensive due to high demand and if you end up eating normal fried chicken it brings shame to your family.

Isn't Christ supposed to be the shepherd though?
