Christmas Elf in Scotland
According to legend, it's bad luck to let the fire go out on Christmas Eve, because if this happens elves will come down the chimney to perform all types of mischief.

Scotland celebrates Christmas in much the same way as they do in England, but they also have their own special ways of celebrating too.

A traditional Christmas lunch will include - Starter: Scotch Broth. Main course - Roast Turkey, Sage & Onion Stuffing, Chipolata Sausages, Roast Potatoes, Carrots, Brussels Sprouts. Dessert - Christmas Pudding and Brandy custard.

Their Christmas pudding is called "Clootie dumpling" made from fruits, suet and flour. It is served hot with cream for the children and whiskey or brandy-flavored custard sauce for the adults.

Christmas Eve in some parts of Scotland is called Sowans Nicht from "sowans" - a dish made from oat husks and fine meal steeped in water.

Legends say that on Christmas Eve, unmarried women had their fortune told by dropping an egg into a glass and the shape of the egg signified the occupation of her future husband.

Kids are as excited about Father Christmas coming, as English kids. He comes down their lum (chimney) and fills up their stockings with presents and sweets.

Snowman Waving From the Top of The World My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some hidden part in all of us that screams out,
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.

The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.

The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
As we eagerly await the happy Yuletide.

Enhance your Christmas, with Christmas poems and stories highlighted with your favorite Christmas carols. Christmas traditions are fast becoming a family way of life.
Poems are a simple way of inspiring others to join in on the Christmas traditions that love and poems bring to this Christmas holiday.
