Cameron explores….a Christmas in Nigeria!


Merry Christmas! or…. “barka dà Kirsìmatì!”,  “E ku odun, e ku iye’dun!”,  Jabbama be salla Kirismati!”,  “E keresimesi Oma!”, “Idara ukapade isua!'”,  “Iselogbe!'”

I am in Nigeria!  Nigeria has a lot of different languages.  Above is Merry Christmas in Hausa , Yoruba, Fulanik, Igbo (Ibo), Ibibio and Edo.  I hope I can learn them all!

Nigeria is in Africa, so it is also very hot.  But, like in Edinburgh, many people spend Christmas with family.  A lot of people travel for Christmas.

The Christmas food is very tasty.  Meat is not just turkey but also beef, goat, mutton or chicken.  There was also yams, rice, vegetable salad and stews.  I was very full after eating everything.

A lot of people have a large party on Christmas Eve that lasts the whole night!  And then they go to Church on Christmas morning.  I liked the singing.
