Christmas Day in the US
7 Jan 2015 | From Emma of USA
This is only the third Christmas-inspired postcard I have received from the official Postcrossing. The other two are a Christmas greeting postcard from Germany and a Santa's helpers postcard from the Netherlands.
In United States the festive season of Christmas traditionally begins on the fourth Thursday in November, just after Thanksgiving. The United States of America has many different traditions and ways that people in celebrate Christmas, because of its multi-cultural nature. Many people in the United States celebrate Christmas Day on December 25. The day celebrates Jesus Christ's birth. It is often combined with customs from pre-Christian winter celebrations. Many people erect Christmas trees, decorate their homes, visit family or friends and exchange gifts.
