Many Angolan Christians attend church on Christmas Eve to await the break of Christmas morning. Many also go to church on 25 December itself. The biggest Christmas celebrations are in Luanda and other major cities, but people celebrate Christmas countrywide.

Many save all year to afford to buy food and gifts for Christmas. The centrepiece of the Christmas feast is the bolo rei, which means “king cake” and is traditional Portuguese Christmas cake. But cold fish with vegetables, rice, turkey, chicken, goat, beef, and wine are all also a usual part of the Christmas cuisine.
