The best South African Christmas carol

The best South African Christmas carol

South Africa finally got its very own Christmas Carol. Get ready for the 12 Days of Christmas, South Africa style!


A lot of Christmas carols are based around having a white Christmas: snow and cold and almost everything that doesn't exist over a South African Christmas. 

Our Christmas' are based around the braai and the beach, so much so, that we tend to have thousands of 'Vaalies' travelling down to our beautiful coast.

I found this version of a South African 12 Days of Christmas

Imagine us adopting this at carol services!

Instead of belting out "And a partridge in a pear tree" we would sing "And a hadeda in a tree"...hahaha...I think let's stick to the original, but it's good for the laugh anyway.
