Christmas in Uruguay

Visitors who plan a December holiday trip to Uruguay are anxious to discover how the Christmas holidays are celebrated and what traditions they might expect to see. Some people come to Uruguay fully anticipating a celebration vastly different from the holidays they enjoy at home.

However, a Christmas in Uruguay is surprisingly much like Christmas celebrations in many other countries, but snow and cold weather are two things that are not present in this Uruguay holidays scene. Christmas traditions in Uruguay are as varied and wonderful as they are in any other country around the world.

For people in Uruguay Christmas occurs during the country's summer season and you are more likely to see tourists wandering around wearing bathing suits instead of snowsuits and parkas. Of course some residents in some areas of California and Florida and those people living on other sunny tropical islands experience the same kind of weather at Christmas time.christmas_market_6.jpg
