Is it really “the most wonderful time of the year”, as it says in the song? Or just a day like any other? Armed only with a camera and some goofy-looking Santa caps, our reporters went out on the streets of Nicosia asking people one simple question: “What are you doing for Christmas?”.

One thing’s for sure: not everyone spends Christmas the same way. Despite the hype, there ultimately isn’t any single definition – and that’s how it should be.
