The kids must have built a separate snowman, unless lyricist Richard B. Smith thought pastors and circus clowns were one in the same. Still, my advice would be to take a shot of whiskey to warm the belly and go face the cold.

Santa-themed bar crawls, bike rides and runs are quintessentially American. But around the world, many countries have their own traditions that we would raise an eyebrow at, not unlike a drunk Santa Claus riding a bicycle through the snowy streets.

Canada: Our neighbors to the north take the story of Santa to a national, postal service level. Any letters addressed to Santa Claus will be opened and replied to. After all, every child knows the North Pole is in Canada. Japan: In , foreigners in Japan wanted to eat turkey on Christmas.

  8. In the 18th century, beeswax was believed to be the purest of all waxes, if wax can possibly withhold purity. The beeswax then aligned with the purity of Christ in the minds of Moravians. Although worshipers used the candles throughout the year during Moravian services, the German Bishop John de Watteville gave them a new significance on Christmas Eve in During his message to the children in the congregation, the bishop taught them the Moravian rendition of the Christmas story. Their understanding of that story would cause Christ to kindle a blood-red flame in the hearts of his believers.

    To emphasize the point, de Watteville gave each child a beeswax candle wrapped with a red ribbon. At the time, everyone lived within walking distance of the church and children would try to bring the holy flame home to light their own Christmas trees. Brother Peter dismissed them with the wish that their hearts would burn as brightly toward the Child Jesus, as the candles were burning.
