Christmas is celebrated by many cultures.  By visiting other countries or sharing cultures, we can bring a greater appreciation to what we know.

I was in Scotland Nov 28 to Dec 5th and it was very interesting to see Christmas decorations everywhere.  It was familiar in an unfamiliar place. Very cool.
