Lesotho is a predominantly Christian country. Attending church on Christmas Day is a virtual must and is the central event of Christmas Day.

Family gatherings are also a huge part of Christmas in Lesotho. Dancing, feasting, singing, and general jubilation prevail. In a land where many are very poor and have little all year long, Christmas is a highlight of the year that people look forward to with enthusiasm.
