Christmas HEADLINE

This year Olivia Newton John and John Travolta have reunited for a Christmas single called “I Think You Might Like It”, and their shiny waxy faces have gone all out with embarrassing dance moves and a cavity sweet melody. It’s for charity so I won’t be too mean but there is something about the holiday season that inspires the lame and the weird: from ugly jumpers to cringe-worthy Christmas singles and awkward office parties. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that every year we get ready to do the exact same thing we did the year before? The need to keep our festivities fresh inspires all sorts of crazy antics.

However, for some real slice of Christmas crazy it’s better to look at the past then the present: BC 4 is the birthday of Jesus and Christmas was ruled as a legal holiday in 1894 so we’ve had a lot of time to go mental under the mistletoe. The following list provides ten Christmas traditions from around the world that are simply too crazy to be true, from menacing monsters to racism and roller-skates, we sure find odd ways to be merry.
