Eskom has suspended power cuts until 5am on Monday morning.
Eskom says the suspension of power outages on Christmas Day is due to the lower demand for electricity.
Stage 2 power cuts will be implemented from Monday morning until 4pm on Tuesday.
The power utility says Stage 3 will then be implemented thereafter.
The embattled utility is appealing to the public to use electricity sparingly during this period or outages would have to be implemented at short notice.
