All I want for Christmas

Since March 2020, I’ve been at home because of Covid-19 pandemic and ASUU strike. During the covid-19 lockdown, these were my daily routines: Morning Devotion with my family, Reading the Bible and devotional, pray, sweep the floor, wash pots, plates and utensils, wash cloths, Bath, sleep, watch movies. I used to wash my hair once in a while. I had home church service only twice, other times my father would go to church with my elder brother. I was always running errands for my parents and also, I tried reading novels and reading my school books even though it didn’t work out so well.

After the covid-19 lockdown, my little brother left for school and my elder brother went for NYSC while I stayed at home with my parents.

I’m at home presently because of ASUU strike and I’m not working and that’s even the worst. I stay at home all day and this is how my days are programmed: By 5:00 am, I wake up for morning Devotion with my family, then I hurry up around 5:50am to 6:30am to Read my Bible and Devotional and also, pray and if I’m still in my room “praying” by 6:30am I’ll be shouted at. I have to finish sweeping the floor and wash all the plates, utensils and pots before it’s 7:00am because my mother goes to work around that time and also, there are other activities that have to be done before 7am. I also run errands for my parents. I make breakfast for my them around 7am. Then, I’ll exercise, wash cloths, bath and afterwards I prepare lunch for my parents. I wash my hair sometimes, go for choir rehearsal during the week days, go to church on Sundays, and go for other church events. Since I came back in March, I’ve actually not gone out for any occasion. I continually try to read my books and novels hoping it works out.

I’ve actually stayed at home for ten months. Like ten months 😭. wow!! I survived. Staying at home with my parents has been challenging. I cry everyday. I really dislike the state of my life so much. In fact, I do not in any way deserve to live like this. Early in the morning, you are shouted at for doing absolutely nothing. That’s why I stay in my room all day reading my novels, surfing the net (twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc) and blog. Blogging became my therapy this year 2020, but sometimes, it is just too much for me to handle. I wake up everyday with migraine. For the migraine, I drink lots of water and it helps but sometimes it gets worse. It’s been so hard working on myself this year. That’s why all I want for Christmas is for God to make my life better.

Christmas is a special annual Festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed primarily on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. It is also called NoΓ«l or Nativity or Xmas. Christmas is a feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it is preceded by the season of Advent or the Nativity Fast and initiates the season of Christmastide, which historically in the West lasts twelve days and culminates on Twelfth Night; in some traditions, Christmastide includes an octave. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world’s nations, celebrated religiously by a majority of Christians, as well as culturally by non-Christians and forms an integral part of the holiday season centered around it. Celebrations done during Christmas are Gift-giving, family and social gatherings, symbolic decorations, feasting, etc.

Biblical: On the day Jesus was born, the three Wise men (Magi) gave him Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh as birthday gifts. Gold as a symbol of Kingship on earth, Frankincense(an incense) as a symbol of deity and Myrrh (an embalming oil) as a symbol of death . Jesus was born in a Manger in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King. Read the full story of the birth of Jesus in the book of Matthew Chapter 1 and 2; Isaiah 60:1-6

It is a normal thing for my Christmas to be boring sha. But for this year, I don’t think it will be different. For the past 19 years, I’ve always celebrated my birthday at home with my family. Even though I usually force myself to feel the Christmas season, I still end up not really feeling it. I miss when I used to come back from secondary school, so hyped for Christmas and carrying that sweet and lovely spirit throughout Christmas and New year.

This year, my mother’s family will be having celebrations and also family get-together, I think so.

I don’t want a lot for Christmas.

There is just one thing I need.

I need you, O LORD to make my life better.

More than I could ever know.

Make my wish come true.

All I want for Christmas is you, O LORD,yeah.

Oh, I won’t ask for much this Christmas.

I won’t even wish for a snow.

And I’m just gonna keep on waiting

Underneath the mistletoe.

‘Cause I just want you now in my life.

Stay with me every time of every day.

What more can I ask for?

God, all I want for Christmas is for you O LORD to make my life better.

Oh, all the lights are shining.

so brightly everywhere.

And the sound of people’s happiness and joy fills the air.

And everyone is happy.

I hear those sleigh bells ringing

Jesus, can you please help me?

Can you please grant me all my heart desires?

Oh, I don’t want a lot of Christmas.

This is all I’m asking for.

I just wanna see you make my life better.

Opening doors of great opportunities for me.

All I want for Christmas is for you to make my life better.

All I want for Christmas is for you to make my life better.

All I want for Christmas is for you to make my life better.

All I want for Christmas is for you to make my life better.

All I want for Christmas is for you to make my life better.

I’m wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year ahead πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ. Enjoy 🎈
