Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Christmas Around the World

Family is key in Finland. After tuning into the national Christmas broadcast, many Finns visit their loved one's gravesites.

Mexican children often break open piñatas, paper mache sculptures, stuffed with candies and coins during the holiday season. Mexico is also the birthplace of the beautiful Christmas plant, the poinsettia.

It is common for Australians to go to the beach during Christmas break, because their holiday season falls during the summer! Even if they're barbequing outdoors, though, families in Australia still spend time together and exchange gifts.

The French refer to Christmas as Noel, which refers to the phrase les bonnes nouvelles, or "the good news."

The Greeks believe that goblins show up during the 12 Days of Christmas to cause mischief. Although gifts are usually exchanged, this common tradition takes place on St. Basil’s Day, January 1st.

In both the United States and England, children hang stockings in the hopes that Santa will fill them with yummy treats and fun toys when he drops in during the night.
