Apart from the religious aspect, Christmas is a time of spending big in Nigeria.
In Christmas Nigerian women become extra beautiful because they spot special hairstyles for the period for which they dont mind paying heavily for. It is usually called ‘Christmas hairstyle’.
Women also do special shopping to buy Christmas clothes for their kids. The ones that can’t afford boutique price go and do benddown select (buy okrika) at Katankuwa and other popular spots.
But according to a Nairalander using the moniker MJBOLT,
“If you have money,everyday will be like christmas to you.”
Is MJVOLT not right? He was reacting to social media celebrity Hushpuppy’s diss about his critics ‘not having money to celebrate Christmas’, whatever that means.
