Christmas in Egypt is special because of 3 main reasons.
That’s why Christmas has to be special in Egypt.
Christians celebration on Christmas Eve is like, spending the whole night in the churches to have a special liturgy that starts from 10:30 pm and continues until midnight.
Then they go home for a very big meal that contains all the delicious Egyptian food as a celebration and the next day they start to visit families and friends with the sweats feast as a gift in their hands.
This is how Christians celebrate Christmas, but all Egyptians celebrate this day also by decorating the streets and stores with colors and lights to have the Christmas spirit in every place you visit.
After Christians finish their prayers, they go home and prepare a big meal that contains all kinds of Egyptian food that they didn’t eat for about 43 days.
This meal contained a famous dish in Egypt which is the “Fata” a lamp soup with some rice and bread topped with red sauce and garlic plus the lamp meat, on the same table there are also many other meals like chicken, pasta and much more.
On the second-day people start to visit their families and friends with some sweats that made especially for Christmas feast like “Kahk and biscuits” and many other items made in a very special way that makes it very tasty.
Not only the Christians made these kinds of sweats, but all the Egyptians also made these sweats as a tradition to celebrate their feasts.
