Festivities

On Christmas Eve night, you can attend any church for the Ghanaian Christian experience. It is not a party, but expect some dancing and merrymaking. Christmas Day is also a church day and time for family gatherings. Don’t be surprised if you are invited for meals and offered freebies. That’s the tradition and the typical Ghanaian hospitality.

You can attend the masquerade carnival called the West Side Carnival in Takoradi in the Western Region on Christmas Day.

The day after Christmas is Boxing Day which Ghanaians take literally. Boxing events are held especially in the capital Accra which is the Mecca of Ghana boxing. Hours to that, the beaches get filled with holiday-makers. The shopping malls and parks are also patronized by many.

The country’s event centres like the International Conference Centre, National Theatre, and the Accra Sports Stadium in the capital are booked for concerts and church services.There are fireworks at the stroke of midnight, and bonfires at the beach including the Labadi Beach where dance parties and concerts are held featuring the country’s top musicians.
