Chritmas Day

Christmas in New Zealand has the same roots as Christmas across the world. It is the celebration of the day Jesus Christ was born in approximately 4AD. Jesus was born in a stable in the area of Bethlehem during the reign of King Herod and was visited by kings from the east who followed a star that led them to the baby.

 Christmas in New Zealand is generally hot so the traditional colours of Christmas, red, green and white, have different meanings here to the northern hemisphere’s robins, holly and snow. Red here is the Pohutukawa, our NZ Christmas tree with blooms of red throughout December. Our green is the kiwi fruit we put with our red strawberries on our white pavlovas. And our white is also the lengths of sandy, summer beaches where Santa loses his thick red suit and can be seen in Santa speedos on a surfboard.

 

Christmas Day is on Sunday the 25th of December, however the public holiday is observed on Monday 27th of December in 2016.

Boxing Day

Boxing Day in New Zealand is always on 26th December, the day after Christmas.

Boxing Day has many traditional origins. The one most favored is that Boxing Day in the 18th and 19th centuries was the day on which the master and mistress of ‘the house’ would give small gifts or food to their staff, usually in boxes.

Not all countries celebrate Boxing Day but New Zealanders love it because, with the public holidays being transferred to weekdays if they fall on a weekend, it means that sometimes there is a four-day weekend right in the middle of summer. Many people link this to their New Year’s Day holiday and can get up to nine days off with only a few days being taken as leave. And with daylight savings, there’s plenty of recreation time for families and social groups.

Boxing day is observed as a public holiday.
