Sunshine? Yes we have that. Warm weather conditions and traditional holiday festivities, Christmas in Belize is something different. We have comfortable temperature, blue skies and rum po po for a fantastic vacation in Belize. But what is there to do over the Christmas holidays?
Is there another more festive or enjoyable time for families? Many big brand companies in the city often host an annual Christmas parade. And yes even Santa shows up with goodies.
In coastal locations like San Pedro (Ambergris caye) and Placencia, boat parades are held. This is a big deal event and one of the coolest to see. It is such a joyful time as everyone gets on a boat and get in it or others line the water ways to see the parade pass by.
Horse races are often held on both Boxing Day (December 26) and New Year’s Day in the village of Burrell Boom. We have yet to hear if it will be held this year due to covid-19 restrictions. It is such an enjoyable form of entertainment.
Historically known as a way for African slaves to mock their European masters without them know it. The Garinagu people take the opportunity to go through the streets singing, and dancing while dressed up with face masks and feathers. It is lively and beautiful to experience.
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.
