Christmas Spirit

Ho ho ho Christmas time is upon us! Once again, we are entering the festive season when we commemorate Christmas day. On this day, people remember Jesus Christ, recall his sacrifices and do a mass service. In the mass service, Christians remember how Jesus died and how he comes back to life later.


Nevertheless, for those not so keen on going to church, they can still enjoy the festive season which highlights another year reaching its climax, a good spirited finishing before New Year’s celebrations. This is a time when families get together, rejoice, or in other words have a good time. Many get merry while partying, and pulling a cracker or two. Children receive presents which makes the whole event exciting, so it is the time of year when people crack open perhaps a bottle of bubbly, or some other alcoholic bottle to celebrate.


So, my message is to make the most of Christmas this year by making others have the best time of their life. Making another person feel special is gratifying, especially to see them smile. Crack a joke! Give them plenty of hugs and kisses! Give them a present or Christmas cake! Make their day enjoyable! One thing you guarantee is your satisfaction of seeing them having fun. You get the fulfillment of being the special one to enhance the climax of their experience.


Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!


All the best!

Prof. Carl Boniface
