  1. 1. A Traditional Scottish Christmas Read on to find out some interesting facts!
  2. 2. The History of Christmas  Christmas was often known as Nollaig Beag , Little Christmas. The custom was to celebrate the Birth of Christ with all solemnity and the festivities began a few days later, and spilled into New Year and Twelfth Night, which was known as 'Little Christmas'.  Black Bun. Originally Twelfth Night Cake. It is a very rich fruit cake, almost solid with fruit, almonds, spices and the ingredients are bound together with plenty of Whisky. The stiff mixture is put into a cake tin lined with a rich short pastry and baked. It is still eaten today!
  3. 3. Where do our traditions come from?  Most "traditions" here are actually imported from England and the USA.

About the only particularly Scottish Xmas tradition, is the Yule Log, which was a large log which was burnt over Xmas, by being pushed through the fire as it burnt. "Yule" is the proper Scottish word for Christmas (plus Nollaig if you speak Gaidhlig).
  Some people eat a yule log for pudding at Christmas. It is a sponge cake that is covered in chocolate and rolled up. Yum!
  4. 4. How l celebrate Christmas with my family.  Christmas eve is a very exciting day for children here in Scotland. Traditionally, children hang up their stockings by the fireplace and hope that Santa will fill it with little presents.  Children will leave some carrots for Rudolf and a mince pie for Santa. They are bound to be hungry with all of the travelling!
