Christmas gets a touch of uniqueness across the world, each tradition more wacky than the other! Let’s celebrate this season with an appreciation for all those souls who added glitz to an evergreen festival.

Santa’s postal pincode
Gone are the days when it wasn’t clear where exactly Santa lived. The North Pole? No, just a little farther down. Santa now has an official postal code — H0H0H0. And that’s in Canada. The ‘elves’ at Canada Post have been kind enough to respond to millions of mails sent to Santa that somehow bypassed the parents. They not only write back in different languages but even in Braille!

Check out some more wacky Christmas traditions by subscribing to the print magazine or the digital edition.
