Merry Christmas from 9jagirl

Things my Dad didnt teach me about Christmas.
Many years ago, i was a little boy clinging to my Dad Abel Ekene Snr, as we walked together to attend a Christmas service. My Dad told me a lot about Christmas but there are things Dad didnt teach me about Christmas.

Dad never told me that Christmas was a time to drink and get drunk.

Dad never told me that Christmas was a time to have sex with whoever is willing.

Dad never told me that Christmas was a time that is about a ‘party’ without Christ.

Dad never told me that in Christmas, it dosent matter what you do as long as you ‘enjoy’ yourself.

But…

Dad told me that Christmas is a time to love.

Dad told me that Christmas is a time to be selfless.

Dad told me that Christmas is a time to reflect and review our life.

Dad told me that Christmas is a time to draw close to God.

Yes…

Things are different now. I guess Christmas has a new meaning that Dad didnt tell me his dear son, Mfon Ekene!
