Christmas in Mali

Mali is a mainly Muslim country, but Christmas is also an official public holiday. In Mali, most Christmas celebrations take place in Churches, where people remember the real meaning of Christmas, that Jesus came into the world as a baby.
虽然非洲马里是一个穆斯林国家,但圣诞节也是马里的法定公共假日。在马里,大多数圣诞庆典在教堂举行,人们铭记圣诞的真正含义——耶稣诞辰。


The festivities begin on Christmas Eve with an all night service which includes worship, preaching and items performed by different groups including children and young people. The children memorize bible verses to recite on Christmas day at Church, as do the women. At the Christmas Eve service, each language group gets up and sings a song in their language.
圣诞节前夜庆典从一项通宵仪式开始,包括儿童和年轻人在内的不同群体进行礼拜、布道等活动。儿童和女人熟记圣经诗句,以便圣诞节当天在教堂背诵。圣诞节前夜仪式上,不同语言群体盛装打扮,用各自的语言唱歌。


There is often a baptismal service on the day after Christmas (Boxing Day), although this is sometimes held in the week before Christmas. Baptismal Services are special services where Christians make a public statement that they follow Jesus. This is normally done by being totally immersed (dunked) in water.
在节礼日即圣诞节次日常举行洗礼仪式,有时会在圣诞节前一周举行。洗礼仪式上基督教徒会公开声明追随耶稣。受洗者通常全身浸在水中。


Some people can spend over 30 hours in Church over the Christmas period!
圣诞节期间,有人能在教堂待30多个小时。


After Christmas the women's group of the Church often goes around to different courtyards (of houses) to greet people, sing and dance. The Church choir also does the same. If they come to your yard it is customary to give a small gift of money to the group. This is after Christmas Carol Singing!
圣诞节后,教堂妇女组织和唱诗班经常绕到不同庭院,问候人们,唱歌跳舞。如果他们去你家庭院,惯例是在他们唱圣诞颂歌后给一点钱。


Not many people give and receive presents at Christmas in Mali. It is only normally done by rich families.
在马里,少数人圣诞节时会互送礼物。通常只有富人才这么做。
