Christmas 2019 in Sunny Belize? Say Yes and Your Wish Comes True
Stressed out neighbors. Shopping overload. When was the last time you relaxed on Christmas?
It’s hard to know what to expect from December weather these days, what with hotter summers, colder winters, floods and weather patterns reported by news headlines that tend to blame everything on global warming. But there is one thing you can count on: It’s always sunny in December in Belize where palm trees hung with holiday lights and Baby Jesus in a creche surrounded by tropical flowers make this holiday a special one.
‘Tis the season to go swimming
Belize in December is paradise, which is why wearing summer attire to Midnight Mass and a Christmas Day jump into the Caribbean Sea are just part of the celebration. Over 10 religions practiced in Belize celebrate Christmas, so the sheer variety of traditions, ceremonies and rituals visitors experience are extraordinary, meaningful and just plain fun.
What can you expect if you wrap your gifts, deliver them to friends and family early and catch a plane for Belize where sunshine and warm breezes abound? These are just a few things to look forward to:
-Drink delicious wines made in Belize from unusual sources like cashews and chocolate
-Attend colorful Garifuna Jonkunu dancer performances on Christmas Day
-Witness the Deer Dance, originated by the Maya people and performed only at this time of year
-Take part in a Las Posadas procession, recreating Mary and Joseph’s journey to the Bethlehem inn
-Attend Creole Christmas songfests, especially if you’ve never before heard “Brukdown” songs performed
-Eat traditional foods that include spicy rice, beans, potato salad, stewed chicken, tamales and black fruit cake.
Participate in holy and secular celebrations
Because around 70-percent of all Belizeans consider themselves Christians, Christmas is one big holiday party from border to border. If you can’t find a number of festivities you long to attend, remember that you can always stay home and shovel snow instead.
