Christmas traditions in Germany are numerous. Each region has its own traditions. Saint Nicholas was the main source of gifts and presents during the Christmas season, and he continues to give gifts to children on his birthday, December 6. He visits children in schools, public events, and kindergartens, and he often comes to their homes. To receive a gift from Saint Nicholas, children must recite a poem or sing a song. Their servant Ruprecht will punish the child with dark clothing and devilish traits if the child is not good behaved throughout the year.
Christmas traditions also include visiting neighbors, exchanging gifts and urari de craciun with friends, and enjoying a festive meal. During Christmas, children open their gifts as late as they want, and they may even stay up until the wee hours opening them. They may also receive gifts from family members, neighbors, and house pets. However, they can’t get presents on their own. They must wait for their parents or a family member to buy them presents.
Julemanden, a Danish Christian Santa Claus, celebrates Christmas in Denmark. This name translates to “the Yule Man,” and the Christmas tree is decorated in a special way for the arrival of Julemanden. The julenisser, or nisser, is a benevolent spirit that helps the jolly man bring presents. In addition to receiving gifts, children also leave out treats for the nisser.
Many people celebrate the day when the innocents are honored during Christmas. The Day of the Innocents celebrates the day that the Magi brought gifts to baby Jesus. The Day of the Innocents, which is celebrated on January 6, is followed by gift-giving through Christmas Eve and the first day of the New Year. Gifts are often given on Christmas Eve, but godparents will often give them to their children in January 6.
In Germany, the Christmas traditions vary from region to region, but many of them share a common tradition. On Christmas Eve, children traditionally leave food for their favorite saint. During the holiday, parents give out a gift to each child, and children exchange presents. While the Christmas season is celebrated throughout the world, it can still be confusing for children. There are plenty of holiday traditions in many countries around the world.
