Christmas in Scotand
In one of Santa's ancestorial home, Scotland, the season is
most always celebrated on New Year's Dalled as Hogmanay.
It seems to have dreived its custom from the dire predctions of what would happen
if the fireplace shold go dark on Christmas Eve, while all the elves are abroad helping Santa.
Christmas Day is a tie for bonfires, dancingand the plying of bagpipes.
Boncakes, made of oatmeal, are traditionaly the table fare.
Christmas in England
Christmas celebrations began in England perhaps in AD 596, when St Augustine landed on her shores with monks who
wanted to bring Christianity to the Anglo Saxons. Folks enjoy beautiful Christmas music, especially decorating
Christmas Trees and the hanging of evergreen branches. Mummering remains a custom from the Middle Ages, when folks
put on masks and acted out Christmas plays; still performed in towns and villages. Santa is known as Father Christmas,
who wears a long red or green robe, to leave presents in stockings on Christmas Eve. Children leave an empty stocking
or pillowcase hanging at the end of the bed. Gifts are opened Christmas afternoon. Christmas dinner is usually eaten
at noon on December 25. A traditional Christmas dinner consists of roast turkey with vegetables and sauces. Dessert
is a rich, fruity Christmas pudding with brandy sauce; mince pies, and pastries filled with chopped dried fruit.
The day after Christmas is called Boxing Day because boys used to go round collecting money in clay boxes, which the
lads and lasses broke open.
