Christmas Traditions in Argentina

Feliz Navidad y Feliz Año Nuevo

The Christmas celebration in Argentina is similar to celebrations in the United States and Europe. Gifts that are purchased during the holiday season are wrapped and placed under a traditional Christmas tree.

Families attend a Christmas celebration at church before coming together to share Christmas dinner. Since Christmas takes place during the summer in Argentina, the Christmas dinner is usually barbecue or some other favorite dish of the family. After dinner, cakes are served for dessert along with Sidra or Champagne to drink.

The evening is completed with a show of fireworks at midnight.
