Awesome! Let’s get started!

Multi-Cultural Christmas

In the United States, every 25th of December people celebrate Christmas in many unique ways because of its multi-cultural nature.

The modern, commercialized Christmas began to emerge in the 19th century with the new custom of buying gifts for children.

Many of the Christmas holiday activities differ from family to family. It often depends on the cultural heritage of the family members.

Some of the customs are like ones in the UK, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, and Mexico.

A typical celebration of Christmas Day in America combines Irish, Austrian, Polish and Belgian traditions.

Despite the variety of cultures, most Americans agree that Christmas is a family time. For many families, Christmas is the one time of year when all family members, come together to eat, drink and spend a great time together.
