For many of us, winter is our favorite season for the simple reason that it brings us directly to the magical holiday season.
December is also the first calendar month of winter, the month of the first snow, the month of gifts and the month in which we celebrate the most beautiful Holidays: Santa Claus, Christmas or New Year. It is the last month of the year, the month of rich meals with loved ones, the month of carols and good wishes, the month of plans for the coming year, but also the family month.
Most of us love and celebrate them according to our own customs and traditions, these being different from one area to another, but also from one country to another. Below are some of the most interesting customs or traditions celebrated by the peoples of Europe:
Christmas in Greece
In Greece, the birth of Jesus is celebrated on December 25. People go to bed early to attend the Christmas service, which begins at 4 p.m. When they return from church, the whole family shares honey, dried fruit, and Christopsomo ("Christ's Bread"), a kind of nut pie that the housewife prepared the night before and in which she made sure to leave her mark. fingers, symbol of the fingerprints of Christ, proof that he was born.
Gifts are not given at Christmas, but on January 1, when the Greeks celebrate St. Basil. This saint is, in fact, the one who brings the gifts. On Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve and Epiphany, Greek children go from house to house singing about the birth of Jesus, the coming of a new year, and the baptism of Jesus in exchange for a few coins.
Christmas in Italy
In Italy, the Christmas holiday lasts for 3 days (24, 25, 26), hence the "crib" - the scene of the Nativity of Jesus, which Italian families install 9 days before Christmas.
During this period, Italians offer sweets with the image of Santa Claus or Jesus to their loved ones, co-workers or neighbors. In Italy, however, Christmas traditions differ from region to region. In the north of the country, the gifts are brought by Santa Claus (Santa Claus) or Little Jesus (Gesu Bambino), on December 25. Elsewhere, they are brought by St. Lucia on December 13.
Christmas in Poland
In Poland, the Christmas period ("Gwiazdka" or "little star") is dedicated to the regeneration of the vital forces of the world, that is, of humans, animals and nature, in order to fulfill the cycle of the passage of time, in the best conditions.
Modern traditions associate magic, New Year's blessings, home decoration, and symbols of reconciliation. Christmas carols are still very much present during this period. In some regions, carolers, groups of children or teenagers, will go from house to house with multicolored stars and scenes of the Nativity of Jesus.
For the preparation of Christmas food, a few straws are slipped under the tablecloth to remind them that Jesus was born in a manger. Before they start eating, all those seated at the table share the unleavened bread (oplatek), marked with scenes of the Lord's birth, and wish them well.
Christmas in Bulgaria
In Bulgaria, Christmas ("Koleda") begins at 12 o'clock at night, when young girls prepare a special bread ("Krava") for their favorite "Koledar" (carol). "Koledarii" are young unmarried or newlyweds, who, dressed in traditional clothes, hold in their hands a "Koledarka", a large carved oak stick. They go around the village and stop at each house to make wishes and to receive gifts specially prepared for them. The Christmas holiday lasts until dawn.
Christmas in Germany
The Germans call Christmas "Weihnachten", which means "solemn night", or "Heiligenachten" - "holy night". It is evoked, then, not the birth of Christ, as in Latin countries, but the service at midnight on Christmas.
From the first Sunday of Advent, the Christmas fairs invade the city markets, thus starting the end-of-year holidays. The Advent wreath, made in the family, with green branches that celebrate nature, is placed, in these days, in houses. On it are either four candles, which will be lit successively every Sunday of Advent, or 24 bags of sweets and goodies that will be tasted daily in the family.
Until Christmas, the Germans visit, as a family, the countless biblical scenes of the Nativity of Jesus, in miniature or life-size, figurative or animated, built everywhere.
Christmas in Denmark
Christmas in Denmark is a holiday that is shared with family and friends. Advent festivities begin four weeks before Christmas. The wreath of green branches is made with family or friends and every Sunday is an opportunity to take part in festive meals, in the company of loved ones.At the beginning of December, all the houses and apartments are lit in red, either with a candle or with lanterns made of various materials. Whether they are fir trees or other trees, the trees in front of the houses are also lighted, and the balconies of the apartments are decorated.
Therefore, the spirit of Christmas is found in every place and has a special meaning for each of us.
How do you celebrate this holiday?
Boxing Day is celebrated on December 26 in Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. On this day, many stores organize big sales, where the item you like can be bought for half the price. And there are several versions of the origin of this unusual holiday.
In Great Britain, for example, in the old days, they would pack inexpensive gifts or some kind of food for the holiday table in boxes and give these boxes to poor families so that they can also enjoy the Christmas holidays.
According to another version, the name "Box Day" comes from the fact that on this day people unpacked gifts that were traditionally displayed under the Christmas tree on the night of December 25 by Santa Claus. And these gifts were packed in beautiful boxes. So on December 26, the whole house was full of empty Christmas gift boxes.
And the third version. Indeed, on this day, people rushed to the shops with boxes to return or exchange their Christmas gifts, which they did not like or were not needed. And gifts were hidden in boxes so that they would not be accidentally seen by those who presented this gift. After all, otherwise it was possible to offend the donor.
In Australia Boxing Day is also becoming a significant sporting event. Melbourne hosts a test match at the main cricket ground, and Sydney kicks off an annual yacht race that rivals high-profile events such as the Davis Cup Tennis Cup and the Melbourne Cup races.
Not long ago, in the upper classes of society, this holiday was dedicated to hunting foxes (now illegal). Its symbol is hunters in red uniforms on horses, surrounded by a pack of dogs. This outdoor activity has been replaced by sports games such as football, polo, horse racing, and others. Australia announces the start of cricket qualifiers, as well as the world famous Sydney regatta.
This cheerful and beloved holiday has been celebrated by English-speaking countries for so long that no one can say for sure about the appearance of its name. Meanwhile, there are many versions.
It is connected with the fact that the next day after the opening of the gifts a whole heap of packaging material is formed in the house: boxes of different sizes, colored wrapping paper, colorful ribbons, etc. This picture can be seen especially vividly in large families.
It is based on the fact that, along with the desired and long-awaited gifts, it is not uncommon for some of the things or objects to be objectionable. For example, there is already a similar item, a thing of the wrong size, not to your taste, etc. Then such gifts were put in one or several boxes and taken to the store in order to return and collect the money.
Has a really funny explanation and is related to boxing. Since on Catholic Christmas (December 25), guests who have gone overboard still somehow restrain themselves from wanting to beat someone, the next day they are ready to flare up like a match for any reason. The comic name of the holiday is Boxing Day.
The British are very sensitive to everything national, including the observance of traditions. In the Middle Ages in English villages on the holiday "Boxing Day '' pets were bled. This is believed to help the animals stay healthy and keep them strong for hard work. Some old people also followed the same custom. It was assumed that for the next year they would not know of any diseases. Another custom associated with the thorny holly tree was observed until the end of the 19th century.
In Montgomeryshire, with a bunch of its branches, they beat the one who got up later, and in some areas of Wales, men whipped the bare arms and legs of women until blood appeared. Wealthy people could make donations to help the poor in churches where piggy banks were installed. Later, this tradition changed - those in need with such boxes gathered in groups and went around the house themselves. In modern England, on December 26, it is customary to give money to letters, messengers and servants.
Another version of the holiday is in the name of Saint Stephen. Saint Stephen the First Martyr was the first Christian martyr who came from the Jewish diaspora. The Christian Church venerates him as the first martyr, archdeacon and apostle from seventy. Saint Stephen is the patron saint of deacons, altar men, undertakers, masons, as well as horses. In the Western tradition, the memory of St. Stephen is celebrated on December 26, the day after Christmas.
In many Western countries, St. Stephen's Day is an official public holiday. In some places there are specific traditions associated with this day. So, in Ireland, another name for the holiday is Wren Day, it is associated with a number of Irish legends. On the day of the holiday, mummers with songs and dances walk the streets of Irish cities from house to house. And in Bulgaria, St. Stephen's Day coincides with Father's Day.
In Catalonia, on the occasion of Sant Esteve's day, a gala dinner is prepared, which serves cannelloni pasta - a type of pasta in the form of tubes. The filling is minced meat leftover from Christmas dinner (this can be meat from the traditional escudella soup, baked turkey or capon). In Austria and Bavaria, it is customary to bless horses and arrange riding parades, and in Finland - to ride a horse-drawn sleigh.
In the UK and a number of countries of the Commonwealth of Nations (former British colonies), this holiday is better known as Boxing Day (literally - Boxing Day). The exact origin of the name is unknown; there are several interpretations. According to one of the most common versions, on this day, servants in wealthy families were given a day off so that they could visit their family, and were given a box with gifts and money.
In the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Trinidad and Tobago Boxing Day is associated with shopping, similar to Black Friday in the United States. On this day, many stores hold sales and offer significant discounts. Some shops open on December 26 at five in the morning - and all the same, in front of the entrance, queues of people wishing to purchase goods at a discount begin to line up in advance.
Another tradition of the second day of Christmas, popular in many countries, is special exhibition sports matches, in which leading clubs and teams take part. In the UK, these are football and rugby competitions, in Sweden - in bandy, in Australia - in cricket, and in Africa - in boxing. Also on December 26, the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race begins in Australia, the King George VI horse races in the UK and the Spengler Hockey Cup in Switzerland.
In some countries, the second day of Christmas is known under its own, unique names that do not connect it either with Christmas as a religious holiday or with the tradition of gift-giving: for example, in Vanuatu and Namibia it is called Family Day, in South Africa - Goodwill Day, on the Solomons islands - National Thanksgiving Day.
