Christmas in Haiti

Christmas in Haiti

This post will cover Christmas. This is a short video on Christmas in Haitian Creole. This post will not cover all the words used to describe Christmas in English because not all the words exist in Haitian Creole. Last year, I also created another post and video to discuss how Haitians celebrate New Year’s day which is also Haiti’s independence day. The post also includes information on how Haitians celebrate Christmas in Haiti. You can read it and watch the video here.

This post will cover things like Christmas, gifts, Santa Claus, Christmas trees and decorations. I have also created a podcast where you can listen to an audio if you prefer to listen over watching a video. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2020.
