Christmas around the World

This post is written by Owl.

Our Christmas book for today is from the Usborne Young Reading series.  It is called “Christmas around the world.”

This book is about all the different Christmas traditions all over the world.  These are the most interesting facts I found out:

  • When Christmas trees were first used in Eastern Europe, they were hung upside down.
  • Some people think that Santa lives in Lapland, but others think he lives in the North Pole.
  • In 1843, the artist John Callcott Horsley invented the first ever Christmas card.

Around the world, people eat different foods at Christmas time.


Roast turkey

Belgium, Brazil, Britain, Ireland, Nigeria and the United States

Boiled cod in creamy sauce


Spicy chicken stew


Roast eel


Roast pig


One day I would like to have Christmas in Finland so that I can try the cod in creamy sauce.

I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.
