Christmas Culture (Shock)

Ugandans celebrate Christmas, big time. But, in different ways. Here you won’t find holly, Santa Claus, or Christmas cookies. Instead, you’ll find things like fish tied on cars’ grills to take to the relatives people are visiting, an assortment of festive hairstyles we’ve named ‘Christmas Hair’, and the evidence of hundreds of animals butchered for Christmas Day feasts. It’s going to take a few years for these varied celebrative expressions to give us that coveted, cozy Christmas aura.
