I don’t know exactly how people celebrate winter holidays in any other place. But I believe relatives or neighbors gather around tasty food and alcohol. When hunger was satisfied, people want to satisfy the spiritual thirst. Relatives convert into sound the love each other, tell sincere words or think about close people who are absent.
I know exactly that any people want to have lovely family, bring and love children.
And it is common for winter celebration. And it makes all people are equal. People who eat goose with champagne, people who eat fish and drink wine, people who eat meat with vodka haven’t a large differences.
