    [h=1]35 weirdest Christmas traditions around the world[/h] Published December 24, 2013

    Ah yes, the holiday season. It’s that special time of year when you leave your shoes outside at night and hope Santa doesn’t fill them with sticks. Wait, what?
    There are some very weird Christmas traditions around the globe, like the one above from Germany. So while you may think it’s bizarre that your cousin Nesbit always does a Rudolph impression, those strange family traditions pale in comparison to the seriously freaky stuff on this list.
    So take a look at these 35 traditions, courtesy of lovehomeswap, to see how other countries celebrate Christmas.

    Irvington, NJ. The racial makeup of the township was 5.64% White, 85.41% Black or African-American.

    Fucking Guidos!

    Rare Exports. Fun Christmas horror/thriller. It's a new take on the mythology...where old, feral, bearded naked "Santa's Helpers" are killing and causing havoc in order to resurrect the now frozen and giant and demonic Santa who's bent on punishing naughty children.

    It's Finnish and sometimes silly, but definitely a fun watch. It's on Netflix Instant if anybody's interested.

    Hey, well look on the bright side...arson's not that much higher than average.

    Fucking Christ! The homicide rate is more than 6 times the national average. And we're spends trillions policing borders in Afghanistan and billions to push these savages into the suburbs... :facepalm:

    PS: It says Murder/ NNH? Any idea what the NNH is? I can't find it on google. Non-Negligent Homicide? Hmmm.

    This is why I LOVE when non-Christians raise a fuss over Christmas celebration. The notion that Christmas is even remotely a Christian holiday overall is a joke. It'd be like using Liberia to showcase the American way.
