Christmas in Israel and Palestine

Looking for another tour?


Wonder about a day or a place?

Let us know :)


Celebrating Christmas in Israel and Palestine is one of the most magical moments for every Christian.

After all, there is no better place to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ then in the town where he was born.

Christmas in Israel is less common as a result of the dominant Jewish and Muslim population and yet it has so much to offer.

Whether you visit Bethlehem, Nazareth, old Jerusalem or ancient Jaffa, it is a surely unforgettable moment!

In areas with large Christian population such as Haifa, Nazareth, Jerusalem, as well as in many Russian neighborhoods, you will find many of the holiday’s symbols.

However, each group has different traditions so some of you might find them unique and unfamiliar.

Therefore, Christmas in Israel is both exciting and unique.

In addition, there is a great importance in finding the right tour guide for this mission.

Getting a certified guide is very important but isn’t necessarily enough to maximize the spiritual experience.

Holy Land VIP Tours offer you the opportunity to visit the mentioned places, on a Private Christian tour.

Also, all the tours are led by our certified, local Christian guide.

Any certified guide can conduct a tour in those places, but only a Christian one can truly understand each place’s importance for our faith.

Also, we are one of the only touring companies which operate in both Israel and Palestine without switching guides.

As a result, our tours are flexible and customizable in accordance with your needs and desires.

Christmas in Bethlehem – the best place for Christmas in the land of Israel and Palestine

Visiting Bethlehem during Christmas time is a unique experience, every Christian visitor should consider

The celebrations are held in the town on three different dates:

  • On December 25, the traditional date of the Roman Catholic and Protestant denominations.
  • January 6 is celebrated by the Greek, Coptic and Orthodox denominations.
  • On January 19, the Armenian Orthodox denominations.

Most Christmas parades pass through the iconic Manger Square.

This is the main plaza of the city, located outside the Basilica of the Nativity.

Usually, Roman Catholic services take place in St. Catherine’s Church and Protestants often hold services at the church of the Shepherds’ Fields.

The best way to visit Bethlehem during Christmas is to join a Private tour, such as our Christian tour in the town.

Only a private tour that is led by a Christian guide can truly provide you with an unforgettable religious experience.

A Christian guide provides the tour with both professional and religious perspective.

Additionally, we highly recommend you to join a local Christian family for an authentic holiday dinner – thus enhancing the experience of the holiday!

I highly recommend Daniel as a guide and I have experienced many guides in many countries. He is certainly of very high quality. He is caring supportive and sets out to organize a trip for each person wants…


Daniel guided us on a 13-day tour of Israel and we cannot speak highly enough of him and our overall experience. Daniel was knowledgeable, flexible, highly social, cooperative, and highly organized…
