Christmas in Egypt
How Egyptian Celebrate Christmas

 As the majority of Christians in Egypt belong to the Orthodox Coptic church Christmas is celebrated on the 7th of January in Egypt equal to the 29th of the Coptic month Khiahk. Advent is observed for 45 days from November 25th to the night of January 6th and during these days people fast eating meat, poultry or dairy products.

Prior to Christmas all the churches and the Christian homes are decorated with Christmas trees, lights, and small mangers.

On the eve of Christmas every body goes to Church wearing new clothes as a away of enjoying the joy of the feast. The Coptic language is used in the church ceremonies and religious songs. In the majestic Cathedral of Saint Mark in Cairo the Pope of the Orthodox church begins Christmas ceremonies at 11 p.m. which are broadcast on television throughout the nation.

When the Christmas service ends people go home to eat a special Christmas meal known as fata which consists of bread, rice, garlic and boiled meat. On Christmas morning people in Egypt visit friends and neighbors carrying special kind of sweet called Kahk which is also eaten by Muslims when they celebrate the feast of Eid El Fetr after Ramadan.

As the way Egyptians celebrate their feasts they go out to enjoy the holiday in parks, cinemas and theatres.

Christmas in Egypt is a joyful occasion that is celebrated by Christians and well respected by Muslims
