BLOGMAS: Christmas In Nigeria.


It's no uncertainty that we cherish Christmas as it is one of the most famous occasions on the planet, and various nations and ethnicity have their methods for celebrating. In Nigeria, Christmas is a religious celebration which is spent with family from both far and near.

Christians in Nigeria has an incredible culture of putting in their best into making the festival fruitful. Individuals travel to ensure that they go to meet up with their family for Christmas. Those who are not available to meet up with family send some cash to their family as their commitment to the festival. This occasion likewise fills in as a sort of family get-together as it brings all the individual from the family home to celebrate, rebuild, and to strengthen their bonds. 


Christmas in Nigeria begins with a morning dedication which each accessible individual from the family will be involved in. Mostly this is to submit the celebration under the control of God and to express gratitude toward him for the perfect gift he has given to mankind. In some other families, they attend the special morning service organised by the churches respectively.

The next thing is preparation. Everyone collectively starts preparing for the party. Ideally, the women handles the food while the men chill the drinks and do some tech stuff.

Some of the Nigerian family's staple includes jollof rice, fried rice, rice and chicken stew, it is often with a complimentary beverage. Some family extend their cooking to make some assorted dishes. There are also the less privileged who have nothing eat, this can get one really sad.

This is constantly a fun period for youngsters, you will find them messing around with a wide range of firecrackers while they rock their new Christmas wear and join companions to have a great time. Literally, most roads are loaded up with the remaining parts of firecrackers after the festival. I believe, Nigeria is the largest importer of firework because I can seem to wrap my head around how much fireworks are used only during Christmas and new year period.

Various streets tend to host street festivals during this period, the youths of the street are consistently the host. On Christmas Day, the intrigued young people turn out on the road to party till late around evening time. At a bigger scale, some festivals are facilitated by big organizations.

For the longest, I have observed Christmas in Nigeria and I think it is a standout amongst other places.
