Public streets and buildings begin to put up Christmas lights and decorations, Christmas trees and wreaths, and otherwise convert over for the advent season as early as two months before Christmas Day arrives.

It’s Christmas Eve that’s the main day of celebration in Dominican Republic. On this day, families gather together to fellowship and feast. Roast pig, baked chicken, spaghetti, and a host of fruits, pastries, and candies will be served and indulged in by all.

On Christmas Day itself, people take time relax and recover from the previous night’s festivities.
