Birth of Christ 

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, lies 10 kilometres south of the city of Jerusalem, in a manger. It’s believed that Jesus comes to the earth to sacrifice himself for the love of humanity. Malaysia observes this as public holiday even though its official religion is Islam.

Church event

Stage performance, Christmas gathering, and caroling are often organized by churches across Malaysia. It’s open for believers and also non-believers to celebrate the birth of Christ together .

It’s surprising that non-believers enjoy celebrating Christmas as much as believers.

Shopping Mall Decoration

It’s not surprising that shopping malls in Malaysia invest hundreds of thousands in decoration to welcome Christmas shopping spree. You will find yourself immersed in the atmosphere of Christmas at shopping malls in the month of December. Some of the shopping malls that decorates with amazing Christmas decorations are Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Mid Valley Megamall, Sunway Pyramid, Penang Queensbay Mall, Penang gurney mall, Gurney Paragon, Paradigm Mall Johor Bahru and more.

 

Club and bar

Night clubs and bars are usually full house during Christmas eve and it’s hard to get a seat if advance booking is not made. It’s recommendable to make an early booking if you plan to have a blast at bars and clubs during Christmas eve. Malaysians love to party, all they need is a reason for celebration.
