Many will spend time with family, feasting on delicacies and sweets. They will exchange gifts, attend mass, go Christmas carolling, and even wait for the coming of “Father Christmas” just after dinner Christmas Eve.

At the major hotels in Cape Verde, there will be fireworks displays just as surely on Christmas Day as on New Year’s Eve. And many who visit here for the Christmas season will enjoy festive gala dinners and head to the beaches since they are very sunny and devoid of rainfall every December.
