Holidays in Cyprus in December in anticipation of Christmas and New Year can bring a lot of pleasant experiences. Can be happy to see how Cypriots prepare for the main holiday of the year.
Especially in the end of the year in Cyprus there is a so-called second wave of tourists who come here on New Year’s holidays.
Holidays in Cyprus in December will be accompanied by a rather pleasant weather conditions. Temperature is kept at 18 degrees. But the water is cold, and obviously this month swim in the sea will be very problematic.
Closer to the twentieth, the day before Christmas, prices go up. Many tourists go to Cyprus to celebrate the New Year holidays. And I must say, they are quite interesting.
Traditional festive Christmas dish is roast turkey. From this perspective, the Cypriots are not much different from the Americans and Europeans. Also on the holiday table abound wine, vegetables, herbs and fruits. Celebrations and can not do without sweets. Variety of cakes and pastries adorn the table in every home. After midnight, all facing the street and start festive celebrations.
Christmas is the favorite holiday of the islanders. New Year is greeted with much less enthusiasm. Dress in Cyprus is not a Christmas tree, as they have, and palm trees. Santa Claus also has a name St Basil. He gives gifts to children on New Year’s night.
On Christmas Eve in Cyprus pass sales and fairs. You will have a chance to buy, for example, a figure of Santa Claus Cyprus.
Will be especially interesting to visit on Christmas Eve in local churches and watch the festive service. Cypriots are very religious, so highly honored Christmas. On holidays priests wear special robes designed specifically for such occasions.
