If you think about it, a lot of our holiday traditions are pretty weird. I mean, 'hanging stockings in front of the fireplace?' That's weird. Since this is my first Christmas in Central New York, I've come up with my own unique way to celebrate.
Snow falls from the sky, shops sell their Christmas wares, and the sweet fragrance of gingerbread houses fill the air—'tis the season! In the United States, there are plenty of Christmas traditions around to keep everyone happy. Gift giving, holiday meals and ornament-covered trees are in abundance everywhere.
