Where? South Africa
When? 25 December 2016
Christmas Day is celebrated in South Africa as in most countries around the globe.
Many South African families uphold European traditions, even though we are in Africa. These include displaying Christmas decorations and trees in houses and shopping centres, exchanging gifts and cards and Father Christmas (Santa Claus) comes to visit.
A Christmas lunch is a tradition for South African families more so than dinner.
