Why not start with the traditions of celebrations in different countries of Europe? Various ideas and possible prejudices should definitely be present on the most important winter nights of Christmas and New Year.
An interesting fact is that each country has its own customs and traditions that are not unique to the others . For example, in Italy on the night of the New Year , trying to get rid of as many old unnecessary things , starting with papers and ending with non-working equipment. Italians believe that winter holidays should be accompanied by red , which brings good luck. And on Christmas night, instead of Santa Claus, instead of Santa Claus comes a fairy Befan with candy or pieces of coal , here it all depends on the behavior of the children .
There is a tradition in England for New Year and Christmas to decorate everything with mistletoe branches , and a must-have is a mistletoe bouquet on a chandelier, standing under which you can count on a kiss from a long -dreamed person.
A bit of a strange yet interesting tradition for the Scots , who burn the barrels of tar on New Year's Eve and drive them all over the street , to clear the city of the bad old year . In addition, the doors and windows of homes are left open by the Scots on New Year's Eve for the New Year to go out and the New Year goes .
However, the custom of the Swedes, who in the new year break the dishes of a neighbor under the door , is really intended.
The people of France have a tradition of burning a whole dry field in the fireplace , so that it can be smothered as long as possible and bring a lot of happiness in the new year . French guests are treated to wine that has a special taste on New Year's Eve .
Austrians and Germans have a similar tradition. They prefer to give each other pigs in the new year in the form of piggy banks , figurines, soft toys, etc., because the pig is considered a symbol of prosperity and prosperity .
In New Year's Eve, the chimes of the chimes, and especially after the latter's blow, make it possible to blow all sorts of whistles and pipes , in order to attract attention in the New Year .
Residents of Greece on New Year's night smash against the wall the fruit of pomegranate and depending on how many pieces it will fly , so much happiness will come in the New Year.
