There are many different Christmas traditions depending where you are in the world. In London you‘ll find people skating on an ice rink in Hyde Park. In New York people will skate below the famous Christmas tree at Rockefeller Centre. In Australia it’s more than likely a swim and Christmas lunch at the beach, where the temperature could be anywhere around 35 degrees on Christmas Day.
However did you know that there is one Christmas Day tradition that is the same no matter where you are in the world? That tradition is – not moving about much!
People take an average of 1403 fewer steps than usual on Christmas Day. Europe is the most sedentary on Christmas Day – in Ireland, for example, people take 2878 fewer steps than usual. In Australia people take 2934 fewer steps.
In light of this a new Christmas tradition might be to take a walk on Christmas Day. Did you know that a brisk walk burns three to six times as many calories as sitting still according to the Harvard School of Public Health?
However, If you’re like myself and don’t intend to take up walking as a Christmas tradition then why not try eating some of our lovely Danish Patisserie Christmas Range. This year we have in our range Lemon and Ginger cupcakes, our Fruit Mince Pies which are available as individuals or in a 6 pack or who could resist our Christmas Bell Shape Caramel Slice.
The Danish Patisserie Christmas Range will be available for ordering from Monday 28th November Don’t miss out.
