A Dominican Republican Christmas
By: Austin Vaught
Christmas in the Dominican Republic last for 4 months. All the way from October to January.
Lots and lots of fireworks...like, a lot.
The biggest celebrations happen on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day is mainly a day for recuperation.
Employees in the Dominican Republic recieve an extra months pay in December.
My family Christmas compared
- My family only celebrates the Christmas season the week of Christmas
- I have never seen fireworks during Christmas
- Christmas Eve is also the main celebration for my family
- My family doesn't get extra pay
