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 ethnicities have their methods for celebrating. 

In Nigeria, Christmas is a religious celebration spent with family from both far and near.

Christians in Nigeria have an incredible culture of putting in their best into making the celebration a blast. 



Individuals travel to ensure that they meet up with their family for Christmas. Those who are not available to meet up with family send cash, as it is a commitment they are obligated to fulfill. 

Likewise, this occasion fills in as a sort of family get-together, as it brings all the individuals from the family home to celebrate, rebuild, and strengthen their bonds. 



Christmas in Nigeria begins with a morning dedication that each accessible individual of the family can't escape. This is mostly to submit the celebration under God's control and express gratitude toward him for the perfect gift he has given to humanity. 

In some other families, they attend the exceptional morning service organized by churches, respectively.



The next thing is preparation. Everyone collectively starts preparing for the party. Ideally, the women handle 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 families extend their cooking to make some assorted dishes.



Christmas is a time of endless fun for youngsters. You will find them messing around with a wide range of firecrackers while they rock their new Christmas clothes and join companions to have a great time. 

Most roads are loaded with the remaining parts of firecrackers after the festival. I believe Nigeria is the largest importer of fireworks because I can’t seem to wrap my head around how much fireworks are used only during Christmas and New Year.



Various streets host street festivals during this period; the streets' youths are consistently the hosts. 

On Christmas Day, the intrigued young people turn out on the road to party overnight. On a bigger scale, some festivals are facilitated by big organizations.

I have observed Christmas in Nigeria for the longest, and I think it stands out amongst other places.


Have fun with Amazon this holiday.
