The Ivorian churches like to celebrate Christmas with an all night service that starts around 9 pm.  During the night there are various music groups that share songs.  There are also different groups, like women, men, youth, girls, boys, etc that do dramas about Christmas.  There is usually a sermon at midnight and another around 8 or 10 am followed by a pot luck supper.
