Christmas in South Africa is Summertime! At school we perform a Nativity play to the local community in November just before the school closes for the holidays.

On Christmas day, most families enjoy a meal or braai together which would include meat, pap and sauce. Many children receive new clothes. 





As for me...I will be in the UK enjoying a vegetarian Christmas dinner with my family in Worcestershire...and hoping for snow!
