Today, I bring you another Christmas Collaboration with all my good friends to share the spirit of joy. I’ve with me Stashy from Stash Matters, Kaily from Hello Kaily,  and Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom (applause!). I’ll put their links down below.

Christmas traditions vary from country to country. Elements common to many nations include the installation and lighting of Christmas trees, the hanging of Advent wreaths, Christmas stockings, candy canes, and etc…

North American influences on Christmas are evident in the hanging of stockings on Christmas Eve, to be filled by Santa Claus. However, Canadian children believe that the home of Santa Claus is located at the North Pole, in Canada.

I hope I’ve explained well the difference between these two countries but I’m not an expert in culture or historic for matter. I did some research and adding some very bizarre tradition my family practices over the years. It’s not written in any book or carved in stone but something we would like to continue treasuring it as our own tradition.

It’s not a surprise what’s my Christmas Tradition is or was like since I briefly mentioned it in my Holly Jolly Christmas Tag. Here is the link to the tag. We set our very own culture to serve hot pot (yes, since it’s cold outside, this dish is so comforting to the tummy), roasted turkey, rum fruit cakes, egg noggs and chocolates as snacks.

Presents to be opened only on Christmas day morning. Children allows to play with their toys afterwards and family picture taking.

Then, we all look forward to the observation of Boxing Day on the day following Christmas Day is a tradition practiced in Canada, as it is in many other Anglophone countries, although not in the United States. In Canada, Boxing Day is a day (or the beginning of a few days) of deeply discounted sale prices at retail stores. We don’t have Black Friday but we do have boxing gloves … ready for Boxing Day!

What do you find in your Christmas tradition that’s evolving? I love to hear difference comments on how you celebrate your tradition.

I’ll leave the rest for you to check at other BABES IN BLOGLAND.

  1. Sharon, your traditions sound a lot like mine, although we don’t make Turkey (cause I always over cook it), we make Ham🙂 Lots of chocolates for sure though… we also do presents early on Christmas and the kids can play with them. I like to open stocking on Christmas Eve though and growing up my mom would always let us open on present (usually pajamas) on Christmas Eve night too🙂

    • Sounds you have a wonderful tradition Kaily. You’re right, I too think that ham is much easier than turkey. Most important is everyone have good food and enjoy this special holiday. Thanks for commenting and so nice to hear your Christmas tradition🙂

  3. I always thought it was so neat that Canada Post would collect letters children write to the North Pole for free! The postal code was H0H 0H0😛
    Boxing Day is the BEST! I only recently learned that Americans don’t get Boxing Day off. Wow, we have something OVER them!

  4. Hmm the only thing I can think of evolving for me is wanting a real Christmas tree. I’ve always loved fake ones. And I buy a new one every few years (bigger and better! LOL I know, I’m bad). But I’m starting to want a real tree!
