Christmas Day is celebrated by the Christians in Melaka. It is celebrated on 25th December annually to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.
Two weeks before Christmas, the Christians usually set up the Christmas trees at home and decorate them.
On the eve of Christmas, the Christians would dress up in new clothes and visit the church to participate in the midnight mass. After the mass service, they would greet each other “Merry Christmas”.
On the Christmas morning, the family would gather and have a feast. Wine, fruit cakes and Christmas cookies are usually served. Then they will be exchanging gifts and opening them.
