Did you know these facts about Christmas in The Mother City?


Christmas is swiftly approaching and if you're spending Christmas in the Mother City then you need to know what to expect about the festive season. 

Here are some fun facts about Christmas in the Mother City:

1. Capetonians love massive Christmas day lunches. This is pretty much similar to anywhere else around the world, big buffet-style lunches are a must-have. Christmas lunch is often served early or the day before so that the day is enjoyed to the fullest with gifts being opened and fun in the sun. Here are some of the most popular Christmas lunch foods:


Glazed Gammon
Christmas mince pies
Roast chicken
Malva pudding
Cold salads

2. Capetonians love spending Christmas day at the beach. After enjoying a massive Christmas lunch, many families will head out to the beach for the rest of the day. Don’t expect to have much space though; the beaches can be really crowded on Christmas day!

3. Capetonians love to braai on Christmas day. If you’re not at the beach or at a restaurant having lunch with friends and family, the next best thing is to have a braai outside in the sunshine. In South Africa, we never really need an excuse to braai and Christmas day is perfect. Don’t forget to bring your own alcoholic beverages and be prepared for massive amounts of food including sides and salads. Here are some of the most popular braai foods:

Sosaties
Braaibroodjies
Potjiekos
Skilpadjies
Boerewors
Apricot snoek
Potato salad
