Christmas & New Year

Christmas & New Year

As religious Catholic countries, much of Africa and South & Central America celebrate Christmas religiously, attending church and celebrating with their families. Far from the Christmas Markets of Europe and commercialism of North America, the UK & Australia and away from comforts of home, travelling to these diverse and fascinating countries offers an exciting insight into how other cultures and communities celebrate the birth of Jesus. In Asia it is possible to escape the Christmas crowds entirely to places where the holiday is barely practised to get to know other religions and cultures aware from the fanfare of Christmas Day.
