Christmas in Tuvalu 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.

In Tuvalu, both Christmas Day and the following day, Boxing Day, are public holidays. This means that you always get a couple days off for the holidays, and you get a four-day weekend should Christmas fall on a Monday or a Thursday.
Tuvalu’s people love to celebrate and to feast on any holiday, and Christmas is certainly no exception. But it is also a very holy day of the year, where people genuinely meditate on the meaning of Christ coming into the world.
Many will take the opportunity to spend time at the beach around Christmas. The sandy shores are so beautiful, and you don’t always have time to enjoy them during your busy day-to-day routine.
