Christmas in Cayman is magical! There might not be snow, but we do put up real Christmas trees and fill our gardens with twinkling lights as the rounds of parties and good cheer begin. Hotels also get into the spirit and its become common practice for each hotel to set up their own special Christmas display - much to visiting children's delight!
While COVID-19 restrictions have meant some annual events have been cancelled, there is still plenty of Christmas fun to be had! See a comprehensive list of 2020 activities here: Christmas in Cayman - Events.
Traditionally, the festive season kicks off with the Christmas breeze which starts to blow in November. Caymanians are big on Christmas decorations and a favourite tradition for many families involves checking out the impressive displays! Capt. Theo Bodden’s magnificent garden, opposite Sunset House, and Rex and Cecile Christon's twinkling front-yard, across from the South Shore apartment complex on Shamrock Road, both become a theatrical display of lights from early December - filling up with visitors each evening!
Camana Bay’s annual tree lighting in November is a great family outing. The Parade of Lights takes place at the beginning of December. The Rotary’s annual carol singing concert in early December is highly anticipated every year. Enjoy shopping at the local craft markets, which all feature handmade festive products and trinkets, and keep a look out for an appearance from Father Christmas!
