No deadline for this!

Find a country around the world, research what they do for Christmas Traditions.
Do they usually do Christmas Eve or Day?
Do they exchange gifts?
Any special festivals/traditions that is different from here?
What do they call Santa?
How they say "Merry Christmas"?

Please share a picture online from their traditions!

Italy

Do they usually do Christmas Eve or Day? They celebrate from Christmas Eve until January 6th (Epiphany)
Do they exchange gifts? Yes, on the 6th
Any special festivals/traditions that is different from here? They celebrate the season and the gifts on January 6th are brought by La Befana (an ugly, nice witch). On Christmas (or Christmas Eve-got confused) many parts of the country traditionally eat a Seven Fish Christmas Dish (a special dinner).
What do they call Santa? Babbo Natale (Father Christmas)
How they say "Merry Christmas"? Buon Natale

Please share a picture online from their traditions! A Nativity Kribbe (most Christmas stuff is related to the Nativity in Italy)

Portugal

Do they usually do Christmas Eve or Day? Christmas Eve, they do a special family meal and open presents
Do they exchange gifts? Yup
Any special festivals/traditions that is different from here? I wasn't aware of any (I have a friend in Portugal) but according to a website I found on Christmas Day they also have a special meal and lay out extra places for deceased loved ones, and that children put out shoes on Epiphany Eve to get sweets and treats from the Three Kings, but my friend doesn't do any of that and she's very in keeping with Portuguese tradition, so...I dunno!
What do they call Santa? Papai Noel
How they say "Merry Christmas"?Feliz Natal
