Fiji vacations holiday season !!!!!!


While some parts of the world are celebrating a white Christmas by making snowmen and baking hot roast dinners with all the trimmings, Christmas in Fiji is a different experience entirely. The warm and sunny weather means sand rather than snow and cold meats and seafood rather than a hot roast meal, much like Christmas in Australia. However, while people the world over enjoy celebrating Christmas with colourful decorations and fireworks, Fijians prefer family get togethers, church masses and carolling. However on Christmas Eve Fijian children still expect Santa to visit them with gifts.

When it comes to the food, just like any other day in Fiji, everything is cooked in the ‘lovo’ underground hot stone ‘oven’ that are place just outside homes. A big feast is planned for either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day and some of the more popular dishes include garlic spice chicken, beef, pork, fish, cassava and Dalo. Another special dish often served at Christmas time is Palusami, spiced mutton wrapped in leaves and cooked in coconut cream. With such beautiful weather to enjoy over the festive season, it’s no wonder Fijians like to make Christmas and New Years a month-long celebration! Visit us @ www.rajtravel.net
