Christmas in Belize
With an abundance of sunshine, warm weather, and old-fashioned holiday cheer, Christmas in Belize is truly something special. If you’re looking to escape the winter blues and want to enjoy an amazing holiday vacation in Belize, there are plenty of exciting things to do and see.
Christmas is a festive and fun time of year for children and adult alike in Belize, as the country celebrates with parades in all of the bigger towns and cities. Belize City is home to the Love FM Christmas Parade where Santa and his entourage distribute goodies to the throngs lining the streets.
Christmas is celebrated with a uniquely Belizean twist with boat parades. In places like Ambergris Caye and Placencia, hundreds of boats decorated in their holiday pass by crowds of well-wishers.
Horse racing may be the sport of kings elsewhere, but in Belize, it’s a popular form of entertainment for people from all walks of life. Enjoy exciting horse races on both Boxing Day (December 26) and New Years Day in the village of Burrell Boom.
Originally a way for African slaves to safely mock their European masters, the Junkanu dance gives Belizeans an opportunity to dress up in masks and feathers as they parade, sing , and dance through the streets on both Christmas Day (December 25) and Boxing Day (25).
Belizeans need no reminders of the “reason for the season” as pious pilgrims proceed through the streets begging for food and lodging in a religious re-enactment of the nine-day search by Joseph and Mary for accommodations ahead of the birth of Jesus.
