Regional Oddities: Did You Know…

…that people in Ghana have not heard of Santa Clause? That’s right, no one here has a clue who Santa Claus is — or Saint Nicholas, Sinterklaas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle for that matter.

A few Lumana volunteers here in the Anloga region of Ghana were trying to explain Santa Claus to the locals the other day and struggled mightily; The Ghanaians they spoke with thought the fact that an old man from the North pole who travels through the air behind reindeer and brings presents to everyone was crazy. Somehow, I agree with them :)
