Five Countries that do not celebrate Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner and people all around the world get excited to celebrate this day with their loved ones, but some countries do not celebrate Christmas.

As the last month of the year hits, people excitedly wait for Christmas day to come. This time of year, people worldwide come together in the spirit of giving hope and love to mankind. Christmas is an annual festival Commemorating the nativity of Jesus Christ. This cultural and religious celebration is observed primarily on December 25.

People start decorating their houses, installing, and lighting Christmas trees, hanging Christmas stockings and candy canes, and celebrating this annual public holiday by sharing meals and giving gifts to their loved ones. Every country has different traditions for celebrating Christmas.

Some countries celebrate Christmas near January 7 as they follow Julian Calendar. But some countries do not celebrate Christmas and have not observed a public holiday on December 25. However, some countries like Taiwan and Pakistan observed public holidays on December 25 but not primarily because of Christmas.

Taiwan celebrated Constitution Day on December 25. It marks the anniversary of the Constitution of the Republic of China in 1947. Similarly, December 25 is a public holiday in Pakistan because it is the birth anniversary of the Islamic Country’s founder, Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
