"It's not just turkey, sprouts and crackers you know! ...variations in global Christmases"

How does the World celebrate the festive season?

  • WVM 3
  • wvm 3
  • wvm 4

This is a question often wondered at this time of year, and our Year 10 iGCSE Geographers found that it fitted in nicely with their population and settlement studies.  On a day when they were attired in festive gear, with the addition of our new world wall map that lots of people saw at the annual Christmas Fair  - well what a great opportunity for displaying students' work and knowledge!

Our budding Geographers examined the majority of the world's countries' styles of celebrating Christmas, specifically looking at traditions, festival highlights - and what they traditionally eat for their Christmas dinner! They found a variation beyond their expectations - for example the Japanese apparently especially like to dine out at a well-known 'fried chicken multinational chain restaurant' at Christmas time  - it's not just turkey, sprouts and crackers you know!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays - whatever you choose to eat on December 24th/25th - Good Appetite!/bon appetit! (France)/Smacznego! (Poland)/Guten Appetit! (Germany)/Buon Appetito!(Italy)/Selamat makan! (Indonesia)...and health and wealth in 2019 from your Geography department!
