Christmas in the Pitcairn Islands is celebrated with a public holiday every 25 December, as it is in a majority of countries around the world. This Christian festivity commemorates the birth of Jesus, and is part of a 22-28 day season in the Christian calendar known as Advent.

As a British Overseas Territory, the Pitcairn Islands observe many of the same holidays as are celebrated in the UK. This includes both Christmas Day on 25 December and Boxing Day on 26 December.
Most inhabitants of the Pitcairn Islands are of mixed European and Polynesian descent. The way Christmas is celebrated is reflected by this mixture too.
