December is one of the best months of the year in terms of weather in Africa. If the weather at the time of travel is an important issue for you, December will be a good time for the holidays. This may be a good time to wander around the area and explore the main sights.


How Christmas is celebrated in Africa:

1 In Africa, Christmas is one of the happiest holidays there is. Christmas is a Christian holiday, during which the birth of Jesus is celebrated, and in Africa we can also find large Christian communities that celebrate it.

2 In Africa, masses are also celebrated at midnight to commemorate the birth of the Savior. Those who are devout religious attend mass during the holidays.

3 And what about gifts? Consumerism is not yet as widespread in Africa as it is in the rest of the world and especially in Europe and America, so on the African continent during Christmas the only thing that is usually bought or brand new is a new dress or suit. However, people who can afford it do give gifts to the family.


As you can see, the Christmas spirit is present, albeit in different ways, in each region of the African continent.
