Liberia has some interesting and unique Christmas traditions on the one hand, and on the other hand, the existence of Western Christmas traditions in Liberia causes it to differ from other African states that usually don’t do much with lights and gift-giving and Santa Claus.

Many attend a midnight mass or a nativity service on Christmas Eve. On Christmas itself, the family fun and partying begin. A strong influence from the USA has created a shopping spree just before Christmas in Liberia and added an element of commercialisation.
