It occurs annually on 25 December and is a holiday where people exchange gifts with their loved ones. Culturally, it has become one of the most popular holidays of the year, involving the tale of Santa Clause or Father Christmas and his reindeer in the North Pole.

What are good decoration ideas for a summer Christmas?
There are many types of decorations, depending on one’s location, culture and available resources. The main feature in many homes when decorating is a Christmas tree.

Superbalist offers a wide range of decorations to put around the home at this time of the year. Superbalist sells scented candles, wallpapers, artwork by acclaimed artists, wall decorations, oil burners and planters, perfect for bringing an inviting feel to your home when family and friends visit.
How is Christmas celebrated?
Christmas is an international holiday that is celebrated at the end of the year, by spending time with family, friends and loved ones. This festive day is usually celebrated with jolly gifts, a big communal meal and activities that revolve around the season. Christmas celebrations vary according to culture, religion and geographical location. Many celebrate Christmas through a Western lens which includes the tale of Santa Clause, the reindeer who pulls his carriage full of gifts and the elves who help him wrap the gifts.

When is Christmas celebrated?
Christmas officially takes place on the 25th of December but many also celebrate it during the late afternoon or evening on the day before, the 24th. In countries in the Northern Hemisphere, this is during winter when it snows, hence the expression ‘white Christmas’. In countries in the Southern Hemisphere such as South Africa, this time of the year is during the height of summer. As a result, this time of the year is associated with the sunshine and spending time outdoors with family and friends doing fun activities around the home or in public spaces like beaches and parks. Christmas at Superbalist usually begins in early December for the 15 Days of Deals offers.
Why is Christmas important?
Christmas is an important holiday as it brings together friends and family through festive cheer, love, gifts, cultural traditions and food. It is observed in many Western countries as the main holiday in the month of December and is the reason this period is called the ‘holiday season’. This is also due to it being so close to the end of the year (and in the United States, close to the Thanksgiving holiday) when many businesses, schools and institutions close. In South Africa, Christmas is celebrated with family and friends, and it is the time when many people travel to visit them. They bring gifts with them – Superbalist is the best place to purchase Christmas gifts. Superbalist has beauty and grooming presents, gift sets, fashion for women, men and kids, artwork, jewellery, phone covers, kitchen supplies and tableware.

How is Christmas celebrated in South Africa?
Christmas in South Africa is celebrated in the middle of summer as it is in the Southern Hemisphere and is often spent outdoors if the weather is permitting. People will gather with their family, friends or other loved ones for a braai (barbeque) in their home or a public space like the beach or a park. Food commonly enjoyed includes meat such as turkey, chicken, lamb or beef, along with vegetable dishes, salads and desserts, and is cooked by the host or communally by the attendees. There is usually an exchange of gifts between loved ones spending the day together, and the best gifts are usually bought from Superbalist, South Africa’s number one online fashion destination, thanks to the wide variety of presents on offer on the app and on the website.
