Odd ways to celebrate "christmas"
Here is an odd one from Slovakia
In the night from 5 to 6 December, there is the Svaty Mikulas (Saint Nicolaus) with a demon and an angel visiting all houses in Slovakia.The children put thier shoes out by the door. If the children were good the whole year, they find fruit or a bar of chocolate from Svaty Mikulas in thier shoes. The bad children receive coal or potatoes from the demon.
