If you are someone who hates the Western style of Christmas party, don’t feel pigeon holed. Plenty of other countries do other cool stuff. If you fancy a change why not do it like they do in another culture?:

The Japanese have very few Christians among them and consequently couldn’t give two flying sleds about Jesus. They all celebrate in an incredibly magical way — they eat KFC on Christmas day, they even order it well in advance to avoid disappointment. Read more about that here.

They have a statue of a guy taking a shit in their nativity scenes. His name is El Caganer meaning “the crapper”. No one is too sure why. They also have a Christmas log that poops in the fire, and then they hit it with a stick. Bravo.


In Venezuela Christmas parties often involve skateboards, roller blades and bikes.

Ukrainians, instead of vibing their tree up with glitzy baubles and tinsel, cover it in plastic spiders and spider webs. It’s like a special kind of Jesus-based Halloween.
