Christmas in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) is celebrated for the most part like in the UK or other Commonwealth nations. A holiday is observed across the islands every 25 December.

For Christmas in BVI, you can expect things like plum pudding, cards and carolling, gift exchanges and Santa Claus, and on 26 December, Boxing Day.

In years gone by, Christmas in BVI differed more starkly than it does today from the UK. There used to be traditional Christmas trees made of local fishing rods tied together with sprigs of tree branches and painted sliver. This “tree” was often decked out with lights and unique, local ornaments.

The tropical climate, white sand beaches, and seafood heavy cuisine will also make a BVI Christmas quite different from those in cooler regions.
