Christmas season is arguably the busiest season in the year and one celebrated by almost everyone around the world. Many companies close for the year, especially non-essential ones. In Nigeria, it is a highly celebrated season as family members reconnect after a long year of being in different places.
Then there is the preparation of christmas jollof, children singing christmas songs while dressed in the ‘christmas clothes’, as they expect gifts, often money from their older ones. In all these, there are still many things that can be done to make this festive period an interesting and memorable one.
Host a Christmas Party
What is Christmas without sharing meals with people? To create some fun, you can organise a Christmas party according to your budget and invite friends and family. It could be done in the sitting room or in the compound. In fact, it will be a good time to reconnect with family and friends that one hasn’t seen in years.
Hang Out with Friends and Families
If hosting a christmas party at home won’t be fun for you, you can hang out with family and friends. You can have picnics at parks such as the Lekki Conservation Centre in Lagos, watch movies at the cinemas, visit resort centres or go have fun at the beach.
Go for Musical Concerts and Festivals
December is always a time for relaxation and full of activities such as concerts and festivals. Get yourself in the mood and attend as many festivals as possible. Many Nigerian artists have already organised their musical concerts so you have varieties of shows you can choose from even into the New Year.
Enjoy the Thrills of Nightlife
If you are a nightlife lover, the Christmas season is another time to relax and enjoy the thrills of nightlife. There are many lounges, bars and hotspots who give their guests good music as they enjoy the night breeze, while having a shot of drink with pepper soup and other edibles. If you like loud music, then Clubs are your go to places. There are also other activities like Karaoke bars where you can have fun.
Visit the Orphanage
Christmas is a season of sharing and showing love. One of the ways this can be done is by spending some time at the orphanage, while showing the kids their love by giving them gifts and making them feel loved. There are many orphanages in Nigeria – going there with food stuff, and organising a get together for them will make them also enjoy a good Christmas. This act of love will definitely leave an indelible mark in the lives of these kids.
