Blogmas Day 18|What My Christmas As A Child Looked Like.

Welcome to blogmas day 18.

How are you all? Christmas is already a week away. Is it looking like Christmas in your area? Me, I’m just waiting patiently for the inhabitants of Port Harcourt to travel to their village so there’ll be less traffic.

Today I’ll be sharing sharing some things that were very important during Christmas time when I was younger. Putting together this blogpost brought pack so many memories and I wouldn’t mind being a child again.

Christmas Hair

Christmas hair was very important when I was younger because that’s the only time I got to put beads in my hair since my school then, banned wearing of beaded hairstyles. Making your hair shows that you’re ready for the Christmas festivities.

Christmas Parties/Seeing Father Christmas.

Whether it was organized by our primary school, church or our parents workplaces, there were so many Christmas parties to always attend. And that meant seeing father Christmas and getting gifts. And yes, the picture is real guys. This is what our father Christmas can look like😂😂 and children usually cry.

Live chicken

We don’t rear chicken at home, but during Christmas time, there’s usually live chickens bought few days to Christmas that would be killed on Christmas day. I enjoyed feeding them with remaining grains of rice from my food and giving them bread too. It always made Christmas rice complete.

Christmas hat

This was always a necessity and I can remember wearing it around the house even before Christmas day. And my Christmas outfit is never complete without this cap.

Knock out(Bangers)

Is it even Christmas if you’re not shooting knockout or hearing people shooting it in your area? I was actually scared of shooting it myself. I was scared that it could explode while still in my hands so I shot only once but I always played with the shooters of the knockout. And if was fun asking for 20naira to buy knockout everytime.

Ball gowns

This was the non negotiable attire for Christmas every year. I loved ball gowns cause they made me feel like a princess. And they usually came with shawls which were pretty too. Christmas was never complete without a new ball gown.

Eyeglasses and wristwatches

Another part of the cool kids Christmas attire😂. The wristwatch was legit the one my mum used to get for my sister’s and I. I can’t remember the ones for my brothers though.


The best part of this was when visitors give us money on their way out. Every anger I had while entertaining visitors that wouldn’t let me watch television in peace would disappear once they share money for us. I didn’t like the serving foods and drinks part too. Then the washing plates?😩 Stressful stuffs.

This is the major part of what I can remember and they always made Christmas fun.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Reading this brought back memories 😂
    The hair and beads OMG 😂. I would literally shake my head so that my beads would make noise and you’ll notice it😂.

    I remember one Christmas, my mom kept saying she’ll get us glasses and wristwatches but she forgot. On Christmas day, we refused to go out with her until she promised to buy them on our way out. I would literally throw tantrums for those things and they must be marching colours 😂.

    Visitors have stopped giving money ohh. When I was a kid, Christmas was cash out season. Now, they don’t give money as much again😭😭😭

  2. 🤣🤣🤣that Santa though😆.
    Christmas as a child…the good old days. Girl!! ball gowns were the way to go💃. 😂i don’t get the watches and glasses thing though,my dad only bought us those when he bought us toy guns/water guns😅. I don’t know why but it completed the look😅

    I get the hat though.😂😂visitors only give money for birthdays now,only little kids get these days😪. The way I hate it when I’m doing dishes and a visitor comes to drop their dishes in the sink with that sorry smile😅 and you have to smile back😝


  3. Christmas as a child was a completely different experience from what we get now. I miss Christmas hair and ball gowns. I hated the Santa visitations though. And the visitors that would give us money out parents would end up ‘keeping’>>>
    Now I’m old and nobody has my time. No Christmas hair or cloth to look forward to, just vibes. 😂
