Christmas Around the World How Various Countries Celebrate the Festival


Friday, December 18th, 2015

Each year on 25th December, the whole world celebrates the big day or the Christmas Day. The day that commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ who dedicated his life for humanity. Though there is one more story related to the day, which reminds us of the Santa Claus who brings gifts and happiness from heaven. It is believed that only the lucky ones get the chance of enjoying his gifts. There are many more real and fake stories that have been heard around but no one knows which one is true and what should not be believed.
Similarly, there are different celebration traditions related to the event that happen in different parts of the world. You may find it weird but actually different countries have their own way and method to commemorate this special day. So, let’s have a look at them and see how many do you know and which one you like the most?

  1. Tying up Mom & Dad for Christmas Gift in Serbia: Serbia doesn’t depends on Santa’s gifts, whosoever wants a gift has to follow the tradition of tying up mom& dad with a rope who pay an amount of money and gifts in the form of ransom to get themselves released. The 2 Sundays before Christmas is mom’s turn of getting tied up and the Sunday before Christmas is meant for dad to follow the same thing.
  2. Serbia

  3. Santa Comes with a Scary assistant In Germany: While in many countries and cities, Santa is supposed to be a good man who always brings good things along, the Santa Claus in Germany brings a devil-like assistant to scare the children. The tradition is followed in order to give children a lesson and teaching them to stay away from the bad deeds. The gifts are distributed by both of them to make a proper impact.
  4. Germany

  5. Gifts come on a Broomstick in Italy: Unlike other parts of the world, the Christmas celebrations in Italy usually take place on January 6. Not only this, the gifts are given by a witch on a broomstick instead of Santa’s red bag. The witch comes on her broomstick and gives away gifts to some people, while the unlucky ones get lumps of coal. Interesting, isn’t it?
  6. Italy

  7. Call Santa by the name of Sinterklaas in Netherlands: So while you are in Netherlands, do not expect the Santa to give you a gift. A person named Sinterklaas comes instead with his helper Black Peter to wish you a merry Christmas. Sinterklaas doesn’t lives on the North Pole and his sledge is not the same. He comes on a steamboat all the way from Spain on Christmas.
  8. Netherlands

  9. No Cookies or Carrots, only Porridge in Scandinavia: Now this one is something definitely not likeable at all. Celebrating Christmas in Scandinavia will make you experience a gnome-like character who will get annoyed if you don’t keep porridge for him instead of cookies and carrots. Tomte, the character who replaces Santa in Norway though brings barns and presents for the children. Do not forget to leave the bowl of porridge else you won’t get the gift.
  10. Scandinavia

    Since every part of the world has their own traditions, how about experiencing them all? Book a Christmas travel deal through Travelation and explore them on Next Christmas.


How to Travel Cheap on Christmas and New Year


Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Christmas and New Year are those two great events when everyone is brimming with joy and happiness. It is that time of the year when we meet our friends, family, relatives and family friends. Most of us have to travel to long and short distances in order to get in touch with them, which is a major hassle not only in terms of traveling but also for money. Traveling on these days is unavoidable and the cost of meeting our loved ones is paid to the airlines and the travel agents, but the joy of reunion makes us forget everything.

Each time this happens and we have to ignore for the sake of our family. But the situation is no longer going to be the same from now onwards because we are giving certain tips on how to save money while traveling on these days.

  1. Book in Advance: Christmas and New Year are two such events that fall on fixed dates, i.e. every year we celebrate them on the respective dates and they never get changed. Taking advantage of this thing, we can save a huge amount of money on our travel by booking our flights in advance. We know we have to fly home, so making the preparations 2-3 months prior can help us save big. So next time when you are planning to visit any of your relatives or friend, book your tickets in September to avoid last minute charges.
  2. Book in Advance

  3. Keep an Eye to all major airlines: Tracking all the offers of almost all the airlines is another way of saving yourself from the huge fares during Christmas and New Year. Most of the airlines circulate extra discounts and offers to its members and signing up for these offers can make you lucky too. Also, you can compare the prices of different airlines and then book your seat with the airline that has the lowest fare. Doing this will not only help you in getting great discounts, but you can enjoy the pleasure of being a special customer for both the airlines.
  4. Keep an Eye to all major airlines

  5. Avoid Last Minute Bookings: This is the biggest mistake most of the travelers make during the major events like Christmas and New Year. They usually book the tickets last minute assuming that the airline is providing extra discounts in lieu of the event, but actually the airlines add extra charges in the form of taxes, etc. and rob the pocket of the customers. To save yourself from being into this kind of situation, always take advance actions and plan your trip accordingly. This will not just avoid inconvenience, but will also allow you to buy extra gifts from the savings that you made by booking the seat early.
  6. Avoid Last Minute Bookings

  7. Be Flexible: Becoming flexible in traveling means adjusting the travel dates according to the event and the festivals. Suppose you have to celebrate New Year with a faraway friend, do book a ticket of a day before the event as it can help you save huge. The same thing is applicable with the timings of the travel as well, flying at odd hours like early in the morning and taking the last flight in the night can give you the opportunity of flying at comparatively lower rates. Think before you book your ticket next time.

Be Flexible


Now when you have the tricks, book carefully and intelligently. Travelation has great offers for Christmas Day travel and New Year travel, do not forget to explore them all.
