Further Details about Christmas Day and Boxing Day in New Zealand

Celebrated throughout the world whether a person is religious or not. Christmas day and boxing day holidays are celebrated in the middle of summer. It was first celebrated on the islands in 1642 by Abel Tasman’s crew.

Rather than have a ‘traditional’ Christmas tree, New Zealanders have the pohutukawa.

Whatever you choose to do on the public holidays in NZ, there is something for everyone. The only problem is that there doesn’t seem to be enough days in the year for it all!
