Christmas Countdown

Christmas is a time where families get together and spend time celebrating in various ways. Most people enjoy a really good meal - traditionally Turkey or Goose is served, but these days many people enjoy duck, pheasant or various other meats, fish, or vegetarian alternatives to their own taste. Christmas pudding, mince pies, roast chestnuts, brandy butter and many other foodstuffs that can only be found at this time of year are enjoyed as well. Tables are usually decorated to show that this is a special festive meal, with Christmas crackers in bright colours and sometimes wreaths of holy and other evergreen decorations, or their more common artificial variants.

The giving of gifts is another traditional part of Christmas with stockings hung by children for Santa Claus or Father Christmas to fill, in other countries shoes are filled with bonbons by St Nicholas, but the general gist of things is still the same with family and friends giving each other gifts in celebration.
