What happens in Christmas here?
Netherlands & Portugal. By: Laura Cervantes
In The Netherlands, an important date is December 5th because that's the day of a major celebration they have. In Portugal, the important date is just like ours'. December 24th and 25th.
The Netherlands- The day of Christmas is December 5th. Portugal- They eat Christmas lunch together and enjoy their goodies. Christmas is on, I think, the 25th of December.
(Portugal)St. Nicholas Day (both) is on the the 6th of December, but in The Netherlands the major celebrations are held on the 5th of December. (The Netherlands) Father Christmas is belived to bring presents on Christmas Eve, rather than Christmas Day. The gifts are left under the Christmas tree, or in a shoe by the fire place.
