Christmas isn't over yet! Not all countries celebrate Christmas on December 25th, according to timeanddate.com 147 countries celebrated Christmas on Friday, December 25th. That means that 49 countries do not celebrate Christmas on the 25th!
The fact that approximately one quarter of the countries did not celebrate on the same day as that other three quarters is not at all astounding, after all, no one knows on what day Jesus was truly born (though some may have educated guesses).
I take this knowledge that not everyone on earth is finished celebrating the incarnate birth of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ yet as a reassurance. It reminds me that no matter what some where someone is still or waiting to celebrate this blessed day, and that even after the one day passes I should still praise Him the remaining 364 days.
In countries where Orthodox Christianity is the prevalent religion they celebrate come January 7th (for another reason this is a very special day to me). Two such countries are Serbia and the Ukraine.
So, for two reasons I'm still posting back logs of Christmas recipes:
1) Christmas is never truly over (after all Jesus is still being born, in the hearts of individuals all across the globe).
2) Internet is so not time sensitive. I am aware that the recipes I find online are rarely just posted but still suit me just the same.
So here's my family's non-alcoholic eggnog recipe!
Makes approx. 12 cups
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
