What is Ugandan Christmas like?

by Clare Sandlers
(Canberra, Australia)

Nov 15,2014


I will be in Uganda later this year for work.

Fortunately I will also have the opportunity to be there through Christmas into the new year. It will be my first Christmas away from my family.

Please tell me; what is Christmas like in Uganda? Are there any Christmas traditions I ought to know?


Dear Clare,

To quickly allay your fears, you are in for a surprise treat ... Depends on where you plan to be and do.

Christmas in Uganda is about love, peace and sharing with friends and family. There is a merry mood, with lots to eat and drink, dancing, and with lots of excitement but in a rather laid-back mood that will give you an opportunity to enjoy a holiday season like you have never before.

There is no need to worry about any traditions, you will be fine. Here is a good read about Ugandan Christmas that will tell you more.

Whatever your expectations, come with an open mind, leaving room for surprises - You will love it!

Merry Christmas!

Regards Robert
