Christmas in Ghana: Before Christmas
Many churches blossom with flowers and palm branches during Advent. As Christmas approaches, some congregations decorate a tree on the church grounds in honor of the coming holiday. In the last few days before Christmas jam-packed buses, trucks, cars, and boats criss-cross the country, ferrying people back to their ancestral towns and villages. Christmas carols blare from radios, loudspeakers, and televisions all over Ghana during this season.
