Venezuela has one of the most entertaining Christmas traditions. It is called The Big Toe. Before Christmas many streets in Venezuela are closed and people get on their roller-skates to go to the church. A string is tied on the children’s toes. Then kids are told to let the end of the string out of their window when they go to bed. In the morning roller-skaters start to return from mass and when they see a hanging string they tug it. This is done so that children can wake up early to receive their gifts.
