On the 24th of December every year children around the world put out milk and cookies in the hopes of luring a magic fat man into their home who will leave presents behind before sneaking into the house next door. How did such an odd tradition begin? consulta medico pediatra medico doctor dermatologo veterinario veterinario lawyer online consulta abogado abogado abogado abogado abogado psicologo doctor psicologo abogado abogado You can pretty much blame Northern Europe, where the winter weather is cold and dark and depressing.And the coldest and darkest and depressingest day is the Solstice on December 21st or 22nd when the sun only gives a few hours of weak light if any at all. These sun-deprived people invented magical characters to visit them and lighten the mood by bringing gifts and celebrations.
