Headcanon in which one christmas Percy gets punished by Zeus and puts him on “Santa Duty” - forcing him to aid Hermes as he delivers christmas presents among olympians. He’s out all night & when he comes back, Annabeth’s passed out under the tree and it’s the cutest thing EVER. the end.
I didn’t have time to finish it, but you guys get the idea. Happy holidays to all! No matter what your belief system is (or isn’t), I personally believe you’re all awesome :3
It is a tradition for families in Slovakia to eat carp on Christmas Eve, but before the fish can be prepared it has to swim in the family bathtub for a day or two. After the meal, everyone collects scales from the carp to bring them luck and prosperity, and they carry them in their wallets until the next Christmas Eve.
Variations of this tradition are also popular in nearby European countries, including Croatia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, and Germany.
