Christmas 2024, 2025 and 2026 in Bermuda

Christmas in Bermuda is celebrated with a public holiday every 25 December, as it is in a majority of countries around the world. This Christian festivity commemorates the birth of Jesus, and is part of a 22-28 day season in the Christian calendar known as Advent.

There is plenty to do in Bermuda on and around Christmas. This is a busy time for locals and visitors alike.

Even though the water is a little on the cold side, it is still swimmable this time of year. Many crowd onto Elbow Beach and other beach strands to take a dip on Christmas morning or just to sun themselves.

There are many special events to attend. There is a tree-lighting ceremony in Hamilton at which Old Saint Nick makes his first appearance. This is what officially opens the Christmas season in Bermuda. There is also a Santa Claus Parade with live bands and colourful floats, a special Christmas dining opportunity at historic Carter House, and a Christmas boat parade in Hamilton Harbour.

Many also go on the beautiful and informative Christmas Walkabout and practice their singing skills at Saint Peter’s Church where free Christmas carolling lessons are provided.
