Fun Christmas Traditions From Around the World

There are many different ways that people celebrate this fun holiday. While some traditions stay the same, like food, family and St. Nick, there are many aspects that are unique to different parts of the world. From waiting until January and celebrating a "good witch" who brings gifts, to some areas who don't even know about Christmas. Check out these interesting Christmas facts to help get you in the Christmas spirit.

China

Christmas is not widely celebrated in China. A few of the larger cities may celebrate the holiday with trees, lights and decorations, but the majority of rural areas don't know about it. Ironically, most Christmas decor is made in China, but they may not even know what they're making!

France

Merry Christmas in French is "Joyeux Noël". They use nativity cribs to decorate their homes throughout December, and nativity figures are sold at the fairs around town. Yule logs, made out of cherry wood are burned in their homes throughout the night in case Mary and Jesus happened to come through. The large Christmas meal is eaten late Christmas Eve or early Christmas morning after Mass, and could consist of roasted turkey with chestnuts, roast goose, oysters, foie gras, lobster, venison, and cheese.

Germany

A large part of German celebrations at Christmas is the Advent calendar. They can be made of many different materials, from paper to fir wreaths. Christmas trees are also a big part of their celebration, and in many cases are decorating secretly by the mother. While we normally think that the glass pickle tradition is from Germany, many Germans haven't heard of it. Between Christmas and New Years, the famous ski jumping "Four Hills Tournament" happens in Germany and Austria.


Italy

Family's spend this holiday together eating and enjoying each other. Christmas Eve is generally it is a day of fasting, ended by a light meal in the evening. Though the biggest celebration happens on January 6th, for Epiphany with La Befana, a kind old witch. The tale says that she followed the wise men around looking for the baby Jesus and then got lost, so she checks every home looking for him and leaving gifts along the way.

Preparing Your Motorcycle For Winter

The temps are dropping and winter is showing signs of its arrival. If you haven't already winterized your bike, now is the time to do it. Even if you have already prepared your bike for hibernation, there are a few things that you'll need to remember to do even throughout the winter season. A little bit of maintenance through the year can save you a lot of headache in the Spring when you're ready to ride. Check out these tips to help get your bike stored properly, and keep it in good condition till you can take it on the road again.

5 Steps for Winterizing Your Motorcycle

1. Clean Your Bike


It may seem redundant to clean a bike and then put it away where no one can see it, but it's important to get all of the surfaces clean. Give you bike a good wash down and dry everything off, you can also use a leaf blower to get all of the nooks and crannies dry. If bug guts and water spots sit on the surface of the paint, it can speed up the corrosion process. After all of the water is dry, wax down your bike to protect from and future moisture. Did you know that the "WD" in  WD-40 stands for water displacement? You can use WD-40 on all exposed surfaces of your bike to displace water and protect.

2. Check the Fluids, Change the Oil, and Replace Filters


It's better for your bike to hibernate with clean oil in it's system than dirty, broken down oil. Plus, if you change your oil now, your bike will be ready to ride in the Spring. You can also consider removing the spark plugs and putting a little squirt of oil in the holes, then turn the engine over a few times. This will help coat the cylinder walls. Once everything is coated you can replace the spark plugs.

3. Prepare Your Fuel System for Winter


Untreated gas, left in your fuel over long periods of time can get gunky. Protect your tank by adding fuel stabilizer to the gas. You can even ride down to the gas station and fill your bike up, add the stabilizer and then on the ride home it will mix and run through your fuel system. You can pick up a bottle of stabilizer here at Surdyke Yamaha, as well as any other bike accessories you may have forgotten about.



4. Care For Your Battery


You don't want to leave your battery plugged in all winter long, as it will cause the battery to self-discharge. You can either pull the battery out and store it in a cool dry place, or you can get a battery tender at Surdyke Yamaha. The tender keeps the battery topped off without overcharging, and you can use the tender while the batter is still left in the bike all winter long.

5. Protect Your Tires


If left unattended for the entire winter season, you tires can develop flat spots from sitting in one place for too long. There are a few ways you can protect your tires through this season, the first is to get some good motorcycle stands at Surdyke Yamaha. At the very least you need a rear wheel stand to keep the back wheel off the concrete, but we also recommend having a motorcycle center stand to keep both wheels up simultaneously. If you don't get any stands for your bike, it's best to go out at least once a month and roll it forward or backward a few inches. If you will be storing your bike on a concrete surface, remember that moisture from the concrete can also damage your wheels. The best way is with any of the stands we've mentioned above, or by putting pieces of carpet or plywood down under each wheel.

Don't be like this guy...
