1. Back to the Village

For most city dwellers in KenyaChristmas offers them a perfect opportunity to visit their folks in the countryside. So, if it’s your first time in a city, such as Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, do not be surprised to find the usually jam-packed streets empty on Christmas Day.

Kenyans customarily start traveling to the village at the beginning of December to spend the entire month there until after the New Year’s celebrations.

In fact, many people consider it a taboo not to visit their rural homes during Christmas.

Due to the high number of travelers during this period, public transport operators usually make a killing by raising their prices.
