Winter Holidays


Christmas traditions in the World

Christmas traditions in the world  have many extensive origins with those from the United Kingdom  and USA outstanding predominantly. In US many others over the past 400 years have come from other religions and customs as well as from  Scandinavia, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Germany, and, most recently, Spanish speakers from Latin America and the Caribbean.

In the US, some winter holidays celebrated in December are Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas.

Hanukkah, celebrated by Jewish people and Hebrews, occurs between late November and December each year and lasts 8 days and 8 nights.

Kwanzaa, celebrated by Africans and African Americans, was first celebrated in 1967.

 It honors African heritage and culture. 

There are seven days of celebration, from December 26 to January 1.

Because gift-giving is an important part of each of these celebrations, holiday shopping is especially big during this time, with many people beginning their holiday shopping the day after Thanksgiving, on Black Friday.

Finally, while Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus, many people in the US celebrate even if they are not religious. Christmas has mainly become a time to spend with family and share presents and tuck into some good food.
