'Tis the Season: Day 11


I'm a lover of all things trivia. Did you know that in Greenland the men serve the women on Christmas Eve? (Totally a fan). Or that Kiviak is a Christmas dish made by putting up to 500 whole auks in a seals skin, seal it and let it ferment for a few months? Or that the traditional straw goat put up in Sweden has only made it to Christmas 13 times since 1966 due to vandalism. Or that Catolonia region of Spain has a strange fascination with poop? Or that Christians in Iraq burn thorns in front of their house as they believe jumping over the ashes three times brings good luck.
