Welcome to Santa’s Net, where you can learn all about Christmas traditions from around the world. A lot of this site is self-explanatory, but I’ll do my best to point you to some interesting information.
The first link you’ll notice is called “How Merry Christmas is Said in Different Countries.” What you will find is a giant list of how to say Merry Christmas! Just scroll down to the country you are looking for and see how it is pronounced in each place.
Much like the “How to Say Merry Christmas” section, the rest of the site is a list for you to choose countries from. They are listed in alphabetical order, starting with Africa and ending with Yugoslavia. You’ll notice that they may also be marked New or Revised. This means they were either recently added or updated.
It was very interesting to read about the traditions and the culture of these countries. Some of my favorites were Japan, Egypt, Africa and Greece. It was also particularly entertaining to read about the different types of food that each culture has during this time of year. Could you imagine leaving Santa a Guinness and a mince pie? Well, they do in Ireland! Or can you imagine feasting for 40 days like some of the people in Greece do?
You may also want to check out these sections on the side menu:

Songs – Here you can read the lyrics to lots of popular Christmas carols and songs. From “Auld Lang Syne” to “All I Want is My Two Front Teeth,” you are likely to find the lyrics you’ve been looking for. This section contains both traditional carols to more contemporary styles of songs.
Here you will learn lots of interesting things about all of these countries, from their food to their traditions. Each one really has their own unique take on the holiday and how it is observed. No matter how you celebrate the holiday season, I hope you have a fabulous one!
