My guess would be South Africa just due to the larger number of western Christians by whom the holiday has the most developed traditions.

Other Christian areas of Africa such as Ethiopia may be interesting as well, but I don't know what traditions they may have as what many consider Christmas is largely a phenomenon of co-option of pagan European customs.

Well I'm Ethiopian and I can tell you that;

it definitely isn't anything like Western Christianity or celebrated like it.
