What would firstly come to your mind when you think of the Christmas?
Santa Clause? A cane? or a fun Christmas party?
I personally remind of these typical colors which are the red, the green and the white.
Did you know that each of these color has its own symbolic meaning?
The red represents for love and sacrifice, the green means hope and eternity and the white stands for an innocence and purity. After knowing each of those meaning, I started to see the difference when I look at the Christmas tree and the decorations around the tree. Perhaps the Santa in red suit with white fur lining supposed to be meant something? I am guessing that handing out gifts to only the kind and the nice refers to the white color meaning. Also, his love towards on kids actually presenting his sacrifices. What do you guys think of my assumption? Anyways, I found some pretty interesting stuff to tell you guys since the Christmas is coming 40 days later from today!!!
As its Christmas is so special for many of us, we have our own ways to celebrate this beautiful day.
Here are the traditional foods to eat during Christmas season in some countries.
Let's take a look at it!
1. United Kingdom : Mince pie
A mince pie is filled with a mixture of dried fruits and spices. It is traditionally served whilst the Christmas season. It had many different names to call in the history as we all know it at present.
Mince has its own meaning which is minced meat.
The British believe that eating mince pie may bring fortune in new year since 13th century, so they eat one for 12 days starting from the Christmas day.
2. Germany : Lebkuchen and Christstollen
Every year, one the most famous Christmas Markets in the world, known as Lüneburger is held in Germany. If you are considering of traveling to Germany during Winter, you may taste many delicious Christmas traditional foods there. One of the popular traditional foods is Lebkuchen.
Lebkuchen is baked Christmas treat mixed with dried nuts and spices and it resembles as German style of gingerbread. It does not have to be looked gingerbread. It may be a person, Christmas tree, and many stuff you like. Another traditional cake is Christstollen. It is a fruit bread containing dried fruit covered with lots of sugar powder or icing sugar which represents the baby Jesus in swaddling clothes.
To make this special cake, the Germans soak dried fruits in rum for about an year and they actually prepare this cake in advance even before the Christmas comes.
3. France : Buche de Noel
Buche de Noel is a traditional dessert looking like a log, served in certain Europe countries.
Actually, Buche means a log and de Noel means Christmas in French so basically the words means Christmas log. There are a few rumors about how this dessert was created. Some says Buche de Noel was made during the time of Napoleon I, where the governor ordered chimneys kept shut for preventing cold from seeping into homes and causing disease. Christmas revelers, who traditionally collected a warm hearth to commemorate the season, opted instead to congregate around a tasty Yule log- shaped cake. But there is a strong hypothesis came from their custom which is to burn all firewood left that they kept since last year may protect them from bringing the misfortune from a new year.
The cake is filled with chocolate both in and out so the sweet chocolate taste attracts to a lot of people to eat this on Christmas day.
4. Czech : Fried Carp
The traditional meal for Western European families is turkey or ham with cranberry sauce on Christmas day. Some Americans use pop-corn threaded on string to help decorate their Christmas tree to enjoy more during Christmas season. But in Czech, a new custom settled which they rather eat fried carp instead of eating meats or hams unlike Westerners on Christmas because of their Catholic beliefs.
In Czech, there is also a fantastic Christmas market called Staroměstské náměstí you may want to try to visit. You can experience the most magical atmosphere on Old Town Squere, where next to the little stalls and a small nativity dominates a huge Christmas tree gleaming with lights and decorations.
And the most interesting thing about the market is that you will see thousands of people lining up to buy carps. Carp's scales resemble to a coin which represents richness so the Czechs put coins and carp scale under the plate to make the following year full of money.
Have you guys made any plans to do during Christmas holiday?
It may be good idea to spend time with your closed friends or boyfriend/girlfriend, but I think as we get age we have less chance to be with our parents. So how about taking parents out for dinner or cook one of those dishes and make them happy?
It will be great to see their smile :) I hope you guys enjoyed my writing this time.
