Christmas in Belize is celebrated throughout the month of December. It’s the month where Belizeans spend quality time with family and friends. Government offices, banks, and most non-tourism-oriented businesses shut down for the week surrounding Christmas Day. Amongst all Belizeans, Christmas is a time to clean and decorate the house. In preparation for expected or unexpected family and friends, the house is cleaned, often new curtains are hung and Christmas decorations are put out. Sound familiar?
