Best Answer

Our Christmas holidays are practically identical to the French ones. We have both Saint Nicholas, which we celebrate on the 6th of December, and Father Christmas/Santa Clause, on the 25th, unlike most of our fellow Orthodox Christians. The latter keep the old Gregorian calender, so their Christmas is on January 7th.

We have some very very old Christmas carols, as well as several traditions regarding New Testament stories about the birth of Christ. An example of one such tradition, and one such story, is a sort of popular play about Herod, a carol sung on the morning of the 25th, dedicated to the Star that led the three Kings to the stable.

As for Saint Nicholas, he brings presents to good children. But he has sticks, and sometimes a raw onion, to naughty children. Whatever he brings are placed in the child's boots, which must be clean.
