From a person knowing a lot about foreign US tranditions and from a friend in the US, things have changed. Christmas music has become modern with pop singers. Food has become less elaborate (Americans like prepacked or precooked ham since many are lazy). Ham is a popular Christmas dish. People have stopped doing tranditions from their native crountries. Christians have advent wreaths to count down the four weeks till Christmas. Things have become less elaborate still people have many icicle lights and real and fake trees with tons of ornaments Advent calenders and they have become obssed with getting instead of giving. It has gone downhill since the 50's and 60's.
