International Christmas traditions

In which country do you find a 'Stille Nacht Society' which makes sure that the Christmas carol Silent Night does not get used for commercial purposes?

In which country does 'Sinterklaas' celebrate his birthday on the 5th of December by giving presents to all the children?

Where does the head of the household throw a spoonful of sticky food at the ceiling to predict next year's crop?

And where would you find a Christmas cake made to look like a log?

If you are interested in Christmas customs from all over the world, follow this link to the website by the German embassy to find an advent calendar with fascinating facts about the weird and wonderful traditions our European neighbours have!
