Last Christmas, Cristiano Ronaldo would have spent time mulling a move from Europe to Saudi Arabia. On Christmas Day 2023, Ronaldo is the face, top scorer, and whatnot of the Saudi Pro League. Though Saudi Arabia doesn’t celebrate Christmas, the Saudi Pro League is not holding any matches on December 25, unlike many other non-Christian countries. Apparently, Christmas celebrations are at their fullest in CR7 and Georgina Rodriguez’s home.
From exchanging impressive gifts to having a grand Christmas dinner outdoors, the Ronaldo household kept the festive spirit alive in the Middle East, far away from home. The Al Nassr star is yet to give his fans a glimpse of the Xmas in Riyadh. But Georgina Rodriguez has shared all the warm moments.
Cristiano Ronaldo and family grandly celebrate Christmas in Saudi Arabia
Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez took to Instagram stories with snaps from Christmas Eve. In light of both Ronaldo and Rodriguez’s association with Louis Vuitton, the French fashion giant seems to have sent them a lot of gifts for this Christmas. Georgina Rodriguez’s stories reveal that her family has received bags from Louis Vuitton merchandise and even two purses for their daughters. Apart from the purses, the soccer star and the model have gifted dolls and many more toys for their daughters, Eva, Alana Martina, and Bella.

Meanwhile, the strong winter winds have caused a bit of chaos in the Portuguese star’s household. One of Georgina’s stories features coloring books, paper, and gifts scattered in a hall, due to a strong wind. She wrote “Tornado in home.” The family has also taken to the outdoors to enjoy the festival. One of Georgina’s posts shows that the household was getting ready for a grand BBQ dinner. Besides, the model also showcased a picture of the typical winter solstice full moon. Ronaldo got a holiday on Christmas in Saudi, just like his days in Europe. But the next day is a working day, and CR7 has got some real work to do.
CR7 got some tough work on Boxing Day
Unlike the Premier League, Boxing Day does not see a tight schedule in the Saudi Pro League. Only one match is played on December 26. This is a much-anticipated clash between Al Nassr and Al Ittihad. It is Riyadh vs Jeddah. Moreover, and most importantly, it is Cristiano Ronaldo vs Karim Benzema! Al Nassr last played Al Ittihad in March 2023.
Then, Al Ittihad had not signed Benzema. This means this will be the first time the former strike partners Ronaldo and Benzema, will be going against each other on Saudi soil. If Al Nassr manages to win, it will indeed be an icing on the cake for their captain, after such a jocund and warm Christmas.
