Christmas! That means decorating Christmas trees, cookies, lot's of presents, and of course, hope Krampus doesn't attack you with branches!
That's right! You might not have heard of Krampus, but children in Austria are absolutely terrified of him. He is said to be a Christmas Devil who does, in fact, beat naughty children with branches. Christmas can be weird in some parts of the world. Let's see what's happening this Christmas...
On the Dinner Table
In South Africa, the table's loaded with Emperor Moth caterpillars. Deep fried, of course. And in Japan, KFC is what they dig in to. And in Slovakia, the loksa pudding isn't for eating. The oldest man of the family throws a spoonful of it at the ceiling.
Santa Claus is here
There's no Santa Claus in Italy, instead Italian children wait for Befana. She's a friendly witch who delivers presents on the fifth of January. Netherlands's Santa Claus is like ours, except for the fact that he has a side kick called Zwarte Piet who kidnaps bad children and takes them to Spain. That's way worse then coal.
The Christmas Tree
Germans hide a pickle in their Christmas tree. The first child to find it gets a small present. According to Ukrainians, using tinsel and bells to decorate the Christmas tree is getting old. Artificial spiders and spider webs are what they use.
Hope you liked the third Christmas post this month! There's one every day till the 25th!
