    Another German tradition that is known worldwide.

    The Krampus is quite a terrible custom imho - and not nice at all.

    My favorite is not even mentioning Christmas until at least November.

    I do not like it if the Christmas decorations appear in August already.

    But talking about Christmas is OK for me.

    Maybe it's different in Europe... but in North America, we've just made it into an over-commercialized circus. It's August 1st today... I'm willing to bet good money the next time I go into a Costco, they're going to have Christmas stuff out.

    *LOL* I'm going to avoid it as long as I can... the place is called Costco (not Priceco or Valueco) for a reason.
