In this article, we want to show you why going to Egypt during Christmas is a great idea.
How does Egypt celebrate Christmas?
It’s always a good idea for tourists to visit the land where the ancient pharaohs once ruled. Still, during the Christmas season, Egypt gets a lot of visitors because of its warm weather, beautiful scenery, and delicious food. It’s nice to make Egypt stand out from other countries in this way.
What does Egypt eat for Christmas?
Egypt celebrates Christmas with food, decorations, traditions, and parties, just like the rest of the world.
The Coptic Orthodox Church, to which most Christians in Egypt belong, has some unique holiday traditions.
They are Orthodox Christians, like most Egyptian Christians, and celebrate Christmas on January 7. A 45-day fast starts on November 25 and lasts until the evening of January 6. The average person no longer eats meat, poultry, or dairy products.
In the weeks before Christmas, every Christian home and church has trees, lights, and small cribs set up. And on Christmas Eve, everyone dresses up like they’re going to a party and goes to church.
At 11 o’clock, the Pope of the Orthodox Church will start the ceremony at the beautiful St. Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo. After the Christmas ceremony, many people would make a special meal called Fata, which includes bread, rice, garlic, and boiled pork.
On Eid el Fitr, a Muslim holiday that marks the end of the month-long fasting period of Ramadan, it is customary to give people you visit sweets called Kahk.

Coptic Christmas in Egypt:
Even young Muslims are attracted to the image of Santa Claus, also called Baba Noel, who represents the giving and kind spirit of the holiday season. Santa Claus brings gifts and comes in through the window, and Baba Noel does the same thing (since there are no chimneys in Egypt).
On January 6th and 7th, kids get small gifts or pocket money that they can spend on sweets like candies and chocolates. Also, Christmas-themed public decorations can be seen on city streets and shopping malls, and people can see these decorations all over the city.
Places to visit at Christmas in Egypt
Egypt has been a popular place for tourists from all over the world to visit for a long time. Egypt is popular with tourists from all over the world because of how pleasant the weather is there. We recommend going to Egypt, especially in December when the weather is nice. Even if you don’t go to Egypt during Christmas, there are some things you can’t miss.
- Cairo: Cairo, the capital of Egypt, is one of the world’s most exciting megacities. Cairo is one of the best places to visit if you are interested in history. However, there is much more to do in Cairo than visit museums and mosques, and Egypt’s capital is Cairo. There is much more to see and do in the city of millions than just the Pyramids of Giza, the Citadel of Saladin, and the Egyptian Museum, among other things. The city is also a great place to go shopping. In the weeks before Christmas, shopping centers with a lot of foot traffic go all out with Christmas decorations, such as putting up Christmas trees. You could find some fantastic treats and gifts to take home from Khan el-Khalili.
- Luxor: Egypt’s Luxor is famous for tourists, especially during the holiday season. Luxor is known as “the world’s biggest open-air museum” because it has ancient and modern ruins, temples, and tombs. East and West are the names of the two sides of the Nile in Luxor. The ancient Egyptians saw a clear difference between the two sides of the Nile. The east bank, where the sun rose, and people thrived, was the land of the living, and the West Bank, where the sun set and people went to the afterlife, was the land of the dead. Ancient Egyptian religious buildings, like temples and tombs, are all over the West Bank. These were places where ordinary people and high-ranking officials were laid to rest so they could start their journey to the afterlife. At Christmas and New Year’s Eve, Luxor shines with its holiday spirit and stunning views. Plus, Luxor in the winter is quiet and has excellent weather.
- Aswan: Aswan has always been and will continue to be one of the most important places to visit in Egypt for tourists. It is known for the stunning beauty of the ancient Egyptian civilization along the Nile, including the Nubian culture, which still significantly impacts the southern part of Egypt. Take home some of Nubia’s traditional and valuable handicrafts as a reminder of your trip there. A journey to Aswan would only be complete with a cruise on Lake Nasser to see the islands in the area, so put that on your list of things to do.
- Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada: Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh are both great places to go on vacation because they are close to the sea and the desert, respectively, and have a lot for tourists to do. People from all over the world like to spend their vacations in these two cities, especially from places like Italy, the United States, Germany, Russia, and the Arab world. Snorkeling and scuba diving are the most popular activities in Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh. Beautiful coral reefs and lots of sea life are used in these activities. You can do fun things in either of these big cities, like windsurfing, kitesurfing, and waterskiing. From Sharm El-Sheikh, you can also take day trips to see more of Sinai, where you can go on desert safaris, see Mount Sinai, and visit the Church of St. Catherine.
Egypt Nile Cruises on Christmas
Nile cruises are always full, especially during the winter holidays. This shouldn’t be a surprise since it’s the only way to have a great vacation in Egypt that people will remember for a long time. Nile cruises are the most popular place for tourists in Egypt because of the fun atmosphere on board, the great food, the amazing Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, the local entertainment, games, and music, and the many other things to do. All cruise guests can expect a high level of service and cleanliness in their rooms. From the top decks of cruise ships going down the Nile, you can see the Christmas and New Year’s celebrations and the busy streets where people go about their daily lives.
Christmas in Egypt includes:
- Sightseeing cruises on the Nile, where you can relax and enjoy the scenery while sipping a cup of excellent coffee.
