It was due to the initiative taken by some of the Christian communities who brought the festival of Christmas in Djibouti. The Christians in Djibouti mostly get attracted towards the western culture and tend to follow their tradition.
None-the-less, Christmas at Djibouti is celebrated with enough zeal and enthusiasm by those observing the religion of Christianity, as all the churches get decorated with candles and lights. Midnight prayers are held and small children singing choirs are joined by the grown ups on this auspicious day.
The choirs and songs that are sung on the Christmas of Djibouti is usually performed in different languages like Arabic, Somali and Afar. All the members belonging to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church unite on the day of Christmas in Djibouti and perform various religious services. The chief feature of Christmas in Djibouti is that all the celebrations take place two weeks later, that is, on the 7th of January.
