Some interesting questions for you to mull over…maybe over a glass of Glühwein? This German pre-Christmas tradition has in recent years spread across Europe to the UK in the form of popular Christmas markets. In Britain people celebrate Christmas with roast turkey and all the trimmings followed by Christmas pudding. Families open their presents that surround the Christmas tree. In Europe many people eat fish, a good catholic tradition, for their Christmas meal. In Central Europe they celebrate Christmas one day early on the evening of December 24. It is also a public holiday on this day in some of these countries!
