Christmas Around the World Infographic

Hello dear Christmas friends!

I hope that your March has been a happy one so far. I am well and truly ready for some Fall weather to arrive Down Under and I'm sure by friends in the Northern hemisphere are ready for Spring to arrive!

Since I'm already dreaming about the cooler weather I'm also thinking about the cold Christmas we just had in Paris.

It was so perfect and very natural to have a cold Christmas, especially since I'm always singing about White Christmases and Snowflakes and enjoying warm toasty fires. You can see why I always find it so strange to celebrate Christmas in summer! This got me thinking about how Christmas is celebrated all around the world! For example, did you know that Venezuelans attend a daily early morning church service between December 16th and 24th alled Misa de Aguinaldo ("Early Morning Mass.") and in Caracas, the capital city, it is customary to roller-skate to this service and many neighborhoods close the streets to cars until 8 a.m.

So, how is Christmas celebrated all around the world....

  1. Wonderful and educational. Thank you for sharing this Natasha :)


Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976
