Christmas Tradition 3: On Dec. 25th. (1. day of Christmas) a lot of people go to church at 11 am. Most families sleep late in the morning and have a "Christmas brunch" ; a lunch containing lots of delicious food. Children are mostly occupied with their new toys. For adults this "brunch" can last most of the day. On the 2. day of Christmas people often take a walk in the snowy paths, children trying out their skies, skates etc. This is the day for visiting family for dinner in the evening. The 3. day of Christmas is not a holiday, but lots of people take a vacation from Christmas to New Year....
