Portugal

Our country has a couple of special traditions, most of which regard food.

In Portugal, more importance is given to Christmas Eve than Christmas day. On Christmas Eve, the family gets together and celebrate by having dinner, which usually includes boiled codfish, and the opening of the presents under the Christmas Tree at midnight.

There is also a very strong, and religious, tradition which is going to Missa do Galo. This Mass is held to celebrate the birth of Jesus  and there, people line up to kiss a representation of baby Jesus.
