Christmas Eve Traditions And Rant Post....

 Tomorrow is Christmas....

What do you wish was different?Wanna Rant?Any Christmas Eve traditions in the Country you live?





In Germany,we open all presents today after Church.....

This year,there wont be any Church services though....

After the opening of presents,everyone settles down to eat traditional Germany light food...Normally we eat in large family groups but this year every family to their own or in VERY SMALL numbers.....

I am making finger food.....champagne is chilled. *wink*


No Rants,just gratitude to God!!!


This post will replace the Chronicles post for today....

    2. @ Chi you don't have to buy new clothes. Was and iron the old ones. Remember there's school fees in jan. Long ago,i thought my children that new clothes for Christmas is not compulsory. My kids have started asking for long term gifts when asked to make their choice, even on their birthdays.

  5. I just want to remind us of somethings necessary;
    It is called CHRISmas not xmas
    Do not remove the Christ's birth you are celebrating
    And do not live a life that you will be ashamed of before the Christ
    you are celebrating.
    I come in peace πŸ’‹πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  6. Yes stella i wanna rant.
    2020 was hardddddd, struggled all through the year, we cant even afford christmas chicken talk more of clothes.
    This year we sold our wedding band to keep body and soul together.
    Its christmas and people are expecting as usual not knowing that we are struggling too, people see you and think you have it all not knowing that you are managing as well. Our kids dont understand that things are not like they used to be. I pray that all these ends this year and that 2021 brings good tidings Amen.

    Lord i'm grateful for life and good health.

  16. Awwww. My eyeballs enlarged when I saw chilled champagne.

    One tradition here dey pepper me.
    Killing of efi umunna.( Killing and sharing of cow meet by the family men). Making ngwongwΓ³ with the cow heads and eating till 10pm.
    The game, yabis, tantrums, drinking.
    It gives some funny humans opportunity to yab me small because I usually hold key to where drinks are kept.
    When drunk you hear all sorts from them, I dread this night walahi.

  23. I don't believe in celebrating Christmas but new year.
    Today is 24th but from the look of things, I'm not sure to that day will be any different.
    When there's life,there's hope.
    I'm grateful

  24. This year is the worst year for me ever since I was born. I lost a sibling in January, made some shocking and devastating discoveries( spiritual ) about my family and I've been battling it since so all of us won't die prematurely. My daughter got married in October and this same daughter almost died on 14th December from ruptured appendix in Europe but for God's faithfulness. In all, I'm grateful to be alive and that I didn't lose my precious daughter. God I thank you

  30. Not really a rant, but no one playing Christmas carols this year like previously, no knockout sound like previously, no xmas decorations like previously except in few places.
    But in all, gratitude flows from my heart.
    Next year will hopefully turn out great.
    Moral of 2020: don't take any blessing for granted.

  36. I’m going out for Christmas lunch tomorrow, can’t be bothered to cook. Which brings me to my Christmas rant, I can’t understand the unnecessary strenuous activities behind Christmas preparations. If you see traffic today ehn, plus all the stores were FULL of bustling shoppers doing their last minute shopping. All this stress over one day, can’t be me sha.

    I’m just going to relax and enjoy tomorrow.

  40. This Christmas sucks...it feels incomplete. On the family WhatsApp group no one is even saying anything. First time we had a loss this close.

    My parents are sad but my sibs & I made sure they will have a good Christmas. None of us could travel home but we keep in touch everyday.

    We all miss her but we know she is happy up in Heaven.

    Above all, thank God for life.

  46. I spent one half of the day cleaning windows and everything glass in the house and under our beds(something I have been postponing ever since). The things kids drop/hide under the bed ehn!!! Na wa. The other half was spent in the kitchen with marinating meats for tomorrow.
    I'm thanking God for the gift of good health. That I am not in the hospital battling for life is indeed a blessing. For those that have lost loved ones,I pray that the Lord shall heal your broken hearts and give you the strength to go through this. For those that are going through hard times,just know that it is a phase that will pass. Glorify God especially this time and watch Him do wonders in your life.
    Merry Christmas everyone.
