Things to Know Before Going South Africa for Christmas!
1) Christmas is observed on December 25th in South Africa.
2) South Africa is a multicultural country with eleven different languages and faiths. In South Africa, Christianity is the most common religion, with Protestantism being the most common denomination. Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, and Buddhism are non-Christian religions in the nation.
