Europe is fervently preparing for Christmas. But we are all doing so in slightly different ways.

Some write a letter to Santa Claus, while others to Joulupukki, Babbo Natale, Ded Moroz, Mikulas  or Weihnachtsmann.

Some are preparing the traditional Panettone, while others Cougnou, vánoční rybí polévka, aebleskiver, or barszcz.

How do you prepare for Christmas? What are the customs, cuisine and traditions in your region?

What is the traditional Christmas food?
