In the USA, Christmas is an important event and they have a lot of traditions.
To celebrate Christmas, the Americans usually decorate their house, inside and outside, in the days leading up to Christmas. Like the French, they buy a Christmas tree and decorate it with their family.
Sending Christmas cards is an American Christmas tradition that allows Americans to invite their loved ones or simply to wish a Merry Christmas to those who are far away through a personalized paper card.
They also hung woolen socks on the chimney and Santa Claus field it with treats.
For dinner, they eat rosted turkey with green beans and cranberry sauce. For the dessert, they eat different kind of tarts with pumpkin, pecan or apples.
On the 25th of December, they open their gifts and spend the day in family.
