Vanuatu Christmas

Celebrate Christmas in the Tropical Vanuatu

Vanuatu holds all the charms of a South Pacific Island and is appealing year-round for international visitors. But when the end of the year rolls around, and residents of the Northern Hemisphere are preparing for a white Christmas and a chilly New Year ... this is when a holiday in Vanuatu is truly unique!

Celebrating Christmas in the tropics is an opportunity of a lifetime, something that you need to have experienced at least once in your life! It may be a little disconcerting for all those familiar with a wintertime feast, for a mid-summer Christmas is better suited to scrumptious fresh seafood, salads and cold meat.

While there are the expats who stick by their yuletide baked turkey or ham, it’s nonetheless possible to create a gourmet feast a little better suited to the climate!

Carols by Candlelight

Carols by Candlelight services on the harbour front in Port Vila are loved by locals and visitors alike, and by night the streets glow with the fairy lights of Christmas decorations. Perhaps the most surprising detail, although entirely endearing, is that Christmas decorations in the streets and shops all feature a red-suited Santa Claus, all ready for the coldest climes, and his elves in Santa hats surrounded by snow flakes. It’s possible to dream of a white Christmas all throughout the world!

The best thing about Christmas in Vanuatu is that it’s a festivity that you can celebrate any way you wish! If you prefer to have a European-style luncheon, with Christmas hats on the heads of all the guests and Xmas crackers adorning each plate, then that’s possible.

Spending Christmas in tropics can be a unique experience - holiday in Vanuatu at Christmas and attend Carols by Candlelight service in Port Vila, where you can celebrate Christmas with locals

Alternately, a picnic lunch of prawns, lobsters and fish accompanied by cold pork, ham and salads while the kids can be off swimming or canoeing is a memorable way to spend your Vanuatu Christmas.
