Christmas Rituals around the Globe Part 2 🌍
We asked you about your holiday rituals and traditions, and today we'd like to share some more of the customs of our fellow courier-colleagues! 💙
I’m from Romania. There are a lot of Christmas traditions, from children singing carols from door to door to pig sacrifice 5 days before Christmas (what I don’t like 😅). I only do the simple ritual like celebrating Saint Nicholas on 6th December and the family reunion with typical Christmas Romanian food (high in calories 😬) on 25th December.

Hindu festival : Sankranti. The day of Makar Sankranti is considered good for auspicious work. Sankranti rituals are taking a bath, offering Naivedhya i.e. food to Surya Dev. This day marks the beginning of the celebrations. People go to donate food and clothes as a form of Dakshina or charity. It is recommended to perform all the auspicious works during the Punya Kala of Makar Sankranti. Makar Sankranti is widely celebrated across northern states of India. It is popular to let kites fly, which is noq also popular among other Indian regions as well. Many people also do Puja to the sun. This is held in the river and cows are worshiped.

I grew up in Indonesia, which is predominantly a Muslim country. But the streets are also decorated with Christmas ornaments. And the movies shown on television are usually Christmas movies as well. In Germany, together with my Indonesian friends, we used to hold an advent mass in our language to welcome Christmas. We often cook and play together. The food varies. Good food is, for me, a hot meal - especially in the middle of cold Germany. Hot pot is my favorite. In the middle of December, we usually have a gift exchange and other events. So from now on we prepare these things - to welcome this coming Christmas.
