We always cooked the favourite meal for parties and celebrations, which was kassava leaves and roots transformed in a compacted and soft paste with rice or chicken or salted fish. In all these celebrations most people went to church, listening to preaching, and considering the opportunity to make a new commitment in life. In short there was something about being better and doing better and feeling better.
I loved and still love Christmas. It is a period of hope and all good efforts to try to be like Him who is our perfect example. This is so in all cultures, countries and places where Christmas is celebrated.
