When I originally prepared this episode I became aware of just how little I knew of the celebration of Christmas in other countries, and how many of those traditions I would love to incorporate into my own celebrations!

In this episode of my 12 Podcasts of Christmas series, I will endeavor to explore Christmas Celebrations in  other exotic locations such as Egypt, Greece, and India. Although the celebrations can vary by date the focus on joy and hope represented in the birth of Christ.

Coptic Christians although a religious minority with their celebrations becoming more commercialized this century, start their celebration of the 43 days lead up, Advent or Kiahk,  to Christmas Day January 7th. Advent is a fasting and refrain from eating meat, egg, butter during this time.

Coptic Christmas Eve there is a special Liturgy followed by parties and festivities on Coptic Christmas Day in which Kahk, or sweet biscuits Kahk_CC.jpg

are given as gift and there is a massive dinner adding back all those foods paired with lamb stew…summers!!! Baba Noel, Father Christmas makes an appearance giving blessings and presents to the nice!

And I will conclude with another reading from Dickens, A Christmas Carol.  “God bless you merry gentleman! May nothing you dismay!”
