Christmas all around the world could be completely different but they also have their similarities. Mexico and the U.S. are really close together but we still have our differences! They do sorta have similarities in our traditions somehow. For example both countries celebrate Christmas on the same day, yet they have it a longer date than we do. One of my favorite part of the similarities is that we never change the word Merry Christmas.
They also celebrate by eating traditional foods like kings cake. One of the traditions is to make king's cake. Kings cake is a cake that is cooked in a bundt pan and it is filled with cream and covered in glaze and sprinkles. Some other traditional foods are shrimp cocktail and donuts that are filled and in a square shape. they also also have traditional colors they wear for parades and parties.

El dia de los Reyes Magos is on January 6. It celebrates Christmas in the latin american cultures.

Good morning/afternoon Miss Kelly and class. Australia Day is one of the most celebrated public holidays in Australia. It’s a day to call over mates for a game of cricket and eat lamb on a ‘barbie’. What better way to convey and persuade this idea than airing it on national television? Australia Day Lamb Ads have taken to our screens since 2006 with a Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) advertisement released every year around Australia Day.
Get string lights shaped like stars, Christmas lights that feature only red, white, and blue, or large light displays shaped like our American flag. Patriotic theme parties are a fun way to bring everyone together, to focus on our nation 's history, and to celebrate and appreciate the soldiers who have served and who are currently serving the United States. Use these ideas to light up your annual July 4th party, or use them as an excuse to start a new patriotic
“In they all came, one after another; some shyly, some boldly, some gracefully, some awkwardly, some pushing, some pulling; in they all came, anyhow and everyhow” (Dickens 41). At this party, everyone is dancing and having a grand time. There is food, dancing, and a person playing a fiddle. Scrooge is enjoying himself. This is one similarity that I share with Scrooge, we attend Christmas parties and have a good
The vast cultural differences between my mother, a Canadian born and raised woman, and my father, a South African born and raised man, always became particularly prevalent around Christmas. This magical time of year holds many of the fondest childhood memories I have of my parents merging their respective cultures, traditions, and values. Every December, my mother would sing carols while decorating the Christmas tree; my father would dance, in his cultural fashion, to beat of her merry tune. Playful bickering about whether Christmas was better spent in the beauty of the snow or underneath the hot sun would arise as the two of them strung lights outside. When it was time to cook Christmas Eve dinner, my mother would insist on typical Canadian
One of the most-awaited moments of the year is right here once again. Dim neighborhoods are brightened by ghastly smiles of Jack-o '-lanterns in communities where the breeze is also slowly getting colder and the leaves that have fallen off of pines give each step a crunch. In a few days, children dressed like pirates, princesses, ghouls, and little monsters will be knocking on doors requesting goodies and several other goodies. Yet just before Halloween begins, you can delight the kids in your community by teaming up with several moms and dads and arranging a Halloween scavenger quest. What youngster wouldn 't want to run around the neighborhood looking for markings like Nancy Drew or one of the Hardy boys?

Upon arrival back at the ranch, you can go to your car or camping area to change if you want. Then head up the hill to the concert gates. A new addition this year is a full carnival on the festival grounds, so now you can take a ride after you float. You can witness a light show from 50 feet up, or ride some of the mellower additions. There are lots of rides, drinking and lawn games added to this year’s Float Fest, so grab some friends and make it a weekend of fun in the sun.
Puerto Ricans have many traditions also. They celebrate something like the world’s longest Christmas. The festivities start on November 23 and go until the end of January when the Fiestas start. Epiphany is another of Puerto Rico’s traditional celebrations, where kids visiting their family get to collect the gifts left by the Three Wise Men. One important person at this time of year is the Puerto Rican Jibaro, figures, because that represents the island’s old classes.
Dates are often seen in homes around the holidays, but they wonderful year round. They can be eaten as is, or used in recipes to make wonderful treats. Grab a handful of fresh Medjool dates anytime you want to satisfy a craving for something sweet. They also help give you a boost of energy so they 're perfect for mid morning, or afternoon energy slumps. Unlike sugary snacks such as candy, dates offer many nutritional benefits.
This year the festival will feature some spectacular carnival rides, great live entertainment, 5K and 10K races, a car show, a parade, and KidFest (which includes a bicycle decorating contest, pie eating contest, water balloon toss and more, for kids 14 and under.) There’s even a Peach Queen and royal Peach Court—this year, those roles are filled by Mianna Gonczar and Shelby VanOphem. And, of course, there are always delicious peaches and peach products at various stands all over the festival. I spent two days in Savannah, Georgia this summer—the peach capital of the USA—and I still believe that Romeo’s peaches could compete with Georgia’s any day.
