2. Special Meals & Alcohol

Christmas in Kenya presents an opportunity for people, especially in the rural areas, to eat special meals that are otherwise considered expensive under normal conditions.

Therefore it is common to find families going on shopping sprees a few days before the D-day. Others spare their fattest goats, chickens, and cows for Christmas festivities.

Millions of liters of alcohol are also drowned during this season. While in the urban centers people go to bars and restaurants to enjoy their favorite drinks, in the rural areas people usually prepare gallons of their local brew, which is enjoyed as families reunite.
