Many people celebrate other holidays. In the USA there are four common holidays during December: Christmas, Swanzaa, Hanukka and Winter Solstice.
At Christmas, Santa Claus comes to put the presents inside our stockings and we leave cookies and some milk for him. 
We decorate the Christmas tree and sing Christmas Carols.

Kwanzaa is a celebration in the African American Culture. It´s a 7 day celebration with candles.

The Winter Solstice is on the 21st of December and celebrates the beauty of winter with winter sports: ski, snowboard, snowshoe and enjoy the winter months.

HANUKKAH is an eighth day Jewish holiday. It begins on the 25th day of Kislev, a month in the Hebrew calendar. This year it began on December 8th at sundown. Hanukkah means dedication in Hebrew. 

On a Menorah they light a candle each night after saying a blessing. 

Then they play a game with a dreidel.

They eat  latkes and jelly donuts.
