In the US, a post-christmas tradition is returning the odd-size and objectionable gifts. But the traditions vary country by country.

For example, in Belgrade, Serbia, 700 people ran through the streets. It was the 3rd Annual Santa Race to raise money for charity. The first 100 adults to cross the finish line won santa costumes, while children got santa hats.

In Berlin, runners turned out for the annual "Goose Run". Being the holidays, cake and mulled wine were handed out at the half-way mark. Santa was among the runners, carrying the race's famous goose...which is stuffed.

And at Australia's famed Bondi Beach, Santa attire was in style...along with bikini bottoms and surfboards. Smug tourists posed for photos to send back to freezing relatives elsewhere in the world.
