Christmas is here! And with it comes a slew of silly and strange traditions that span the globe. Here are just a few found in the pages of Newspapers.com:

This pickle ornament tradition has been referenced before in a past blog post, which includes many more interesting traditions for your perusal.
Black Peter has been accused of having some racist implications, and like the Krampus (with whom he is often conflated) he is a Christmas tradition many would rather do without.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! What kind of fun (or funny) traditions do you have for the holiday season?
