On December 25 in many parts of the world, the birth of Jesus Christ is celebrated by Christian faithfuls and fun lovers in general who see it as an avenue to have a good time.
Also, seeing as Christmas falls around the end of the year, many people party to the fullest and round off the year on a good note.
The economic situation in Nigeria at the moment is undoubtedly a dire one seeing as prices have been hiked as well as borders closed. Despite that, Nigerians have looked for a beacon of light in the darkness by being in a celebratory mood.
A number of people have taken to social media via their Twitter handles to share Christmas messages as well as talk on how they would be spending the holidays.

Just recently, Legit.ng reported that popular preacher, Mike Bamiloye, responded to people who criticize the celebration of Christmas on December 25.
A few people have criticised the chosen date, saying Jesus was not birthed on the date or that it was a date set aside for pagan worship and was only transformed to Christmas.
In the preacher's Instagram post, he asked whether people know the days some popular things being celebrated were born and why they are so concerned about whether Jesus was born on December 25 or not.
Bamiloye added that the whole world has agreed on December 25 to celebrate the birth of Jesus and detractors can decide to mark theirs at any time of the year.
