Christmas Around the World is a blog post series of how Christmas is celebrated in Germany, Sweden, England, Czech, and Egypt. The series also includes a traditional Christmas cookie.
I am a planner. I like to have a general plan for my posts for the year. Each December & January, I figure out what I want to post for the year. Most posts are general like fall side or spring salad. When I started thinking about the fall and winter holiday posts, I wanted to learn more about how Christmas was celebrated by my ancestry. And since Lucy and I are sisters, this would be her ancestry also. This covers 2/3 of us, so I decided to include Jamie. I also wanted to learn how Christmas is celebrated in the countries that Jesus spent part of his life.
I attempted to write a post about Christmas is celebrated in Israel. However, because Christmas isn’t overly celebrated in Israel, it was hard to find any information about food that is served at Christmas time in Israel. So I only was able to write about Christmas in Egypt.
All this to say I am going to be writing about how Christmas is celebrated in:
All of these cultures have a similar Christmas cookie. My last post in this series is a recipe for this type of Christmas cookie.
As I have been writing these blog posts, I have learned a lot about why my family celebrates Christmas like we do. It has been really good to do this. I encourage you to learn about how your ancestors celebrated Christmas.
I hope you enjoy learning about how other cultures celebrate Christmas.
