A Scandinavian Christmas Tradition for Your Birds
Join the Scandinavian bird lovers with a special Christmas Day tradition. It just might bring you good tidings in the Year.
Feed Birds on Christmas Day
I have always found it very interesting to learn about other cultures and traditions, and when those intersect with my passion for birds and birding, it’s even better.
One of my favorite bird related traditions is from the Scandinavian countries in northern Europe. They believe that if you feed the birds on Christmas Day, you will have good luck in the New Year.
So, be sure to spread some seed on your doorstep on Christmas morning (try sunflower seed to attract the most species), and enjoy good tidings in the coming year! This is a fun and easy holiday tradition that the whole family can enjoy. P.S. Have you ever noticed how many gifts in the ’12 Days of Christmas’ are birds?
