Christmas Time At The Maltese Islands

Christmas is one of the lovely celebrations held both in Malta and Gozo as it signifies the birth of Christ. The Maltese celebrate this festivity by church functions in all churches of the islands, nativity scenes, showing of cribs, Christmas trees with plenty of decorations, carol singing and other activities relating to this festive season. 

It is great to join the congregation at St. John's Co-Cathedral Valletta for carol singing. Many street activities displaying the lovely decorations. Shops lit up with beautiful Christmas lights and trees.

Houses decorated with cribs, trees with decorations and multi colourful lights. People rushing everywhere, buying presents for their loved ones. See how the Maltese prepare for Christmas and see what you can do on Christmas day.

Restaurants hotels are usually full for the Christmas season preparing for the big day.
