Worldwide Yuletide Traditions

Everyone celebrates Christmas a little differently… for instance did you know that in Norway on Christmas Eve, spirits and witches come out of the woodwork – and as a result you have to hide your broomsticks so they don’t get nabbed for a quick fly around the neighbourhood…?

We’ve pulled together unique Christmas traditions for this week’s trivia – if you’ve got the Noel nous, you could win one of three USD100 vouchers we’re giving away… Winners to be announced on Karma Group and Karma Concierge Channels on 26 December 🙂
