The Strangest Birthday Traditions in the World

While we automatically accept the birthday celebrations and traditions that are central to our own culture and lifestyle, it is always interesting to learn more about the ways that birthdays and special holidays are celebrated in other parts of the world.

Christmas is one celebration that is acknowledged and celebrated differently by Christians across the world.

Of course, the celebration and tradition of Christmas occurs differently in other parts of the world.
