Jolly Christmas! Bernd 12/24/2019 (Tue) 13:32:54 [Preview] No. 33383
We lacked in such thread.

No snow. Getting used to it but everything looks awful and dull.

Merry Christmas from Wales

No snow here either, what a drab winter.

I hope you all have a merry one free from suicidal thoughts with plenty of laughter and hopefully a shag.

We didn't even decorate the house this year.

We only decorate trees.
But for some years now I see house decorations here and there. Like in American movies and shows. And Santa decoration as if climbing on the walls, balcony and such.

Yep, that was pretty much how my Christmas place was. I had a confetti tree, small plastic presents for decoration and a big gold star over it. And the manger scene obviously

Also put some stockings and some wreaths around.

Eh merry Christmas anyways. Hopefully next year it's a lot better on the decorating.

No snow here neither, but I live in a valley so I'm used to seeing snow far away but and not here so It's nothing new
Anyways Merry late christmas!

I had no decorations whatsoever, not even a ribbon. My only present was a wallet. But I did eat a lot including several kinds of cheese. We'd also have this Christmas treat but the bread was too porous for it. Well, being with family and having fun was the important part.

So what's the weirdest Christmas tradition in your country? Does Santa Claus invade your house to abduct you if you're bad? Are there demons that annoy you in 17 different ways if you're naughty? What sorts of meals do you eat?

Everything went better than expected. Tho the chorus of the kids sang in higher pitch I wished for.

Yeah, old Uncle Joe is a good boy for almost 7 decades now.
No Santa, hereabout Little Jesus brings the presents. It's a K.u.K. tradition. No demons. Regölés is a folk tradition, fertility-wealth magic. The regösök are visiting houses and they chant and sing, then they get presents. I think I wrote about this in another thread.
We eat stuffed cabbage, fish, fisherman soup and bejgli.

The tradition is that in December you start feeding him every night so that on Christmas eve he will shit presents for the children.
Before he shits the presents the kids have to hit the log with a stick, singing a song that goes;
"shit, log,
shit nougats (turrón),
hazelnuts and mató cheese,
if you don't shit well,
I'll hit you with a stick,
shit, log!"

In Wales we have 'sion corn' which literally means john pipe but a chimney is a corn mwg (smoke) so its really john chimney. He is a very grumpy old man who swears by saying blincin. He also sits in an arm chair duct taped to a trailer and his mate tows him around all the villages with Welsh nationalism music blaring as he throws sweets at passing kids. Not sure how local that one is to me though. Also can't confirm but someone told me he pours petrol down the chimneys of naughty Englishmen.

The BBC airs this Christmas concert every year on TV from Cambridge. The chapel itself is really beautiful, a real treasure, thanks dog Cromwell didn't destroy it and England leaving the Catholic church saved it from being transformed into a Baroque splendor golden church.

So here's some more Nordic Christmas stuff. Of course, they have their typical retelling of Christ's birth (which I reiterate happened in mid-September, has nothing to do with Yule) it's usually celebrated on Christmas Eve, own Santa called Julemand that lives in Greenland, so on so on, but let's talk about some older stuff.
There's this gnome character called the "Julnisse" which basically was Danish Santa Claus before there was Julemand. It comes from the usual soul superstitions of Scandinavia, right? You're supposed to feed the gnome porridge, but if there's no butter in the porridge, he literally kills your farm animals. Then there's the "Christmas goat" though this is more of a Swedish/Norwegian thing (Julbocken). If you were naughty, he would come into your house and abduct you, and later boil you alive. I've heard stories about this from Finland as well (where they of course believe Santa is in Finland) And of course you can't forget the "Yule Lads" in Iceland. So in Iceland, they hold "12 days of Christmas" literally, and for these 12 days, if you're naughty, these demons called the "Yule Lads" would just constantly harass you in different ways, like slamming your door, eating your skyr, stealing your meat, etc.
Already knew about that. Apparently Zwarte Piet comes from an ancient Germanic tradition (there was this Germanic tribe in modern Switzerland that'd paint themselves black to camouflage themselves in midnight raids), but at the same time, he comes from Spain where there were actual negroes dating back to medieveal times (from west Africa).

Now you can measure them.
We don't really give gifts. Usually necessities, like new socks or something. Pops will get me a 3M dust mask if everything goes as expected. But this we do year round, so whatever.

I got the equivalent of 14 dollars which, if I don't spend in crypto soon enough and let them rot, will turn into the equivalent of one dollar.

Making more volatile currency than crypto is in itself quite an economic achievement.

Wew, remember our talk from last year Christmas about who brings presents in different countries and how we concluded many characters only appeared during commie times? I've been at my family house yesterday and I was giving gifts to the kids there, and when they thanked me for it I told them it's not from me but from the Starman. Then my 8 year old nephew told me straight to the face that I'm full of shit because starman was made up by commies and that those gifts are from Saint Nicolaus.

why not invest in gold like the poos. It's pretty smart as the mega rich jews own gold and keep the market very stable. It will basically never lose value and be much more stable than the inflation rate of any currency.

It's not like buying crypto where you can set a price and if the price goes according to that you get it. Plus I'd be having to corroborate if it's legit or not.

This is the most conspicuous Christmas sweet, not because of a central role in anything or cultural value (it's an Italian import and more of a pan-Latin phenomenon) but for its frequency in stores. It appears sporadically months before Christmas and gradually builds up until it fills shelves. Then it withers away through the beginning of the following year.
In some versions the fruit is replaced by chocolate. Purists decry this as a fraud and an offense. As a moderate I like the ones with chocolate drops and spots but not the radical, iconoclastic forms such as inner chocolate filling half of the space. Sometimes it's not even sweet chocolate.

I like the pastry/dough from these type of pastries, and not the filling, additional sweet etwas they spice the thing. But sometimes even the dough taste like turd, like the one I ate last year which contained Amaretto.

Bernd 12/31/2019 (Tue) 18:30:06 [Preview] No.33670 del
On the traditional version the extras are light, they're just bits of fruit. The important part is the dough which is sweet and fluffy.
