When we think of Christmas, our minds often gravitate toward Western countries; however, it may be intriguing for many to discover that Christmas is celebrated in diverse cultural settings, including countries within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The unique blend of cultures adds a fascinating dimension to Christmas traditions in the Gulf Region.
Christmas Celebrations in the GCC
The GCC embraces the holiday season with unique traditions and festivities that give a glimpse into the Christmas transformation offering a range of activities and events that cater to diverse preferences.
It is also noteworthy that 62% of people in the GCC area think that decorating for Christmas is important and most of them go about shopping and upgrading their decorations year on year.
In Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Christmas is not as widely celebrated as in some other countries. However, there is a noticeable presence of the holiday season. Some shops may choose to decorate their storefronts, and you can find Christmas brunch events and tree lightings taking place in specific hotels and venues.
In all the above three countries, there is an uptick in sales as people engage in gift shopping during the holiday season, despite Christmas not being a major cultural or religious holiday in these regions.
While Christmas may not be as widely celebrated as in Western countries, the GCC has its own blend of traditions and festivities that cater to diverse preferences. From travel plans to local activities and decorating, the region embraces the holiday spirit in its own way.
