Christmas in South Africa is not nearly as commercial as it is in Europe or the United States, where residents sometimes go into debt to buy the best presents and decorate their house extravagantly.
In South Africa, the religious aspect of Christmas is emphasised more than overseas, with celebrations of the birth of Jesus.
The biggest difference between Christmas in South Africa and Christmas in the northern hemisphere is that South Africa is in the middle of summer, so no white Christmas. Many families take a trip to the beaches or nature reserves and enjoy nature. As Christmas is seen as a holiday, no schools or businesses are open on Christmas Day, so spending time with families over a meal is important. The table will traditionally have colours of red, green and gold, complete with Christmas crackers.
