Strange Christmas traditions
In the first picture you can see the unique Christmas tradition of the Republic of South Africa. There, deep-fried caterpillars are a traditional and „delicious“ Christmas meal.
Maybe „ugly“ and a bit controversial for the rest of the world, but the South Africans are enjoying it and have enjoyed it for as long as they can remember.
The second picture shows a witch that gives out the presents in Italy instead of Santa Claus. The witch is called „Befana“ and she brings the gifts on the 6th of January at the day of „Epiphany“. And if you don’t know the day of „Epiphany“: It is the day on which 3 wise men visited baby Jesus. The story says that Befana could not go and visit baby Jesus because of work and that she still regrets this why she is going to deliver the presents. In Italy, she is more popular than Santa Claus.
This last picture depicts the sleigh that Santa Claus rides while giving out presents on Christmas. The reindeer that you can see next to the sleigh is Rudolph (because of the red nose of course). He misses the rest of the reindeers from his squad. Can you name them?
