Knocking Night

A German game where people in hideous and fearful masks and costumes go from house to house rattling tin cans, ringing cow bells cracking whips, throwing small stones against windows and generally being very noisy. Accasionally, a pitchfork is thrust through the open door for food to be skwered onto it. The custom had a little to do with the stpry of Joseph and Mary knocking on doors of inns.

Julklapp

Meaning Christmas box is a game where people go about the different houses at night, ring the bell, throw in a parcel when the door is opened and dash away before being recognized. The present is disguized in lots of paper or sometimes just a clue is left as to the whereabouts of the present. The longer it takes to work out the giver or where the gift is hidden the better has been the Julklapp.
