What does Christmas mean to you?
To me, Christmas is a season of love. Love should be shown every time though. For me, Christmas is a time to spend with family, catch up and also to reflect on one’s life, especially when it comes to Christianity.
Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
All my Christmas have been memorable.
Tell us your plan for this Christmas.
I always spend them with my family. From the 23rd to the 27th of December, I don’t work. At times we spend it in Lagos, at times we travel out of the country. But this year, we are spending it in the country. At times we go to my husband’s home town and it is always fun. This year, we will be in Lagos.

Kayode Salako (Activist)
What does Christmas mean to you?
To me, Christmas is the birth of the Saviour of the earth and  mankind. Jesus Christ was born so that the world can be re-born, hence re-set the relationship of man and God aright. Christmas is a period when all children of God must reflect and appreciate the love of God for mankind. Because if He didn’t love us, he wouldn’t have sent His only son to come and die for our own redemption. God is love and Jesus is the custodian of that affection for mankind. Jesus is simply the reason for the season.
Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
I have always had good Christmas celebrations, most times outside the country, with my family, in beautiful places. But the last one was the best. I had it in the warm heart, arms and care of my bosom wife, Foluke Daramola-Salako. It was a nice treat all through the period. It was very good, fulfilling and memorable; a bit of it in Lagos and more outside the state, with our kids.
Tell us your plan for this Christmas.
I am still spending my Christmas in the warm hands, heart and care of the same woman, Foluke Daramola-Salako. She is the best part of me and the best I can always spend my Christmas with. We are spending it, this time, more in Lagos, around the happiness of our kids, family members and loved ones. We plan to host a few of our friends around the period in our home. And enjoy every bit of it while it lasts. So, we are staying around to celebrate it with people around us in Lagos. With nice locally-bred chicken; local guinea fowl (Awo Oko) and basmati rice meal. And thank God my wife is a fantastic cook. She is set to treat everybody to a nice Christmas celebration.

Christmas is a time of reflection and a time to thank God for the sustainability of our lives till this day, a time to be close to our loved ones.
Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
I can’t say specifically, but I guess my best was when I had my first child, Ibunkunoluwa. It was exciting because I was seeing another part of me.
Tell us your plan for this Christmas.
This Christmas is going to be a quiet one. We might be going to a neighbouring resort because we just had my father-in -law’s burial. So, all we intend to do is be together and keep it quiet.

Benedict O. Daniel, aka ACAPELLA (Comedian)

Mc-Acapela-AY-Show
What does Christmas mean to you?
Christmas for me is the most memorable day of human existence. Because it’s a day we celebrate the birth of a King that has come and yet He’s yet to come. It’s a day we celebrate one man that laid down his own life for all mankind to live! It’s a day we celebrate a man who lived and still lives! I don’t think there’s any day worth more to be celebrated than Christmas day.
Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
Christmas has always been sweet for me because my mum was born on Christmas day and so it’s always a big day to celebrate, but the best so far was when she turned 55, because on that same day, I got a call for my first show in Europe.
Tell us your plan for this Christmas.
Because of the nature of my job, it’s hard to predict how I will spend my Christmas day. It’s usually a routine of performing on one stage or another, helping people celebrate the day in a laughing and happy mood! But for this year, I will be travelling to perform in Ghana, so I will be celebrating it in Ghana.

What does Christmas mean to you?
Christmas for me is all about celebrating the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; not Santa Claus. And also appreciating the love of God towards humanity. For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son… Jesus is the reason for the season.
Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
Wow! That was in 2008 when I went to Transcorp, Abuja with my wife and my friend and his wife. It is my best Christmas still…

Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
The best Christmas I ever had was in 2006 with my first child, because I had had several miscarriages prior to that time. I refused to stop working. I believed that a child that complements me and my multi tasking nature will come. So that Christmas was fantastic.
Tell us your plan for this Christmas.
I intend to visit an island on vacation because I have agreed with my God that financial doors will open when I approach and all good things that I’m looking for will turn around and look for me.

Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
I have always wanted to spend Christmas away from home. So, in 2005, my hubby brought out our travel tickets and said “how about flying out to Paris to spend the Christmas?”  I was so happy, it was the best Christmas I ever had, because we also used the opportunity to renew our love/vow.

It means that God has not forgotten us. His love for mankind is still paramount, because it’s a time to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus, and He has given us a rare opportunity to renew our life and walk on the right path.
Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
The best Christmas for me was when I was a kid, when my mum and dad were there to provide for my needs. But the pressure is now on me to provide for others and if you can’t provide all they want, both family and friends that are looking up to you, as a natural giver, you tend to feel bad.
Tell us your plan for this Christmas.
I will spend it with my family, attend some events and share and receive gifts; pray and thank God for all.

 

Tese Onokala (Entrepreneur)

Literally, Christmas represents the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. But for me, it is a time I unwind, reflect on my past, make amends and hope for a better year.
Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
I can’t really say, but this year, I think, is going to be my best because I feel relaxed. I am not under any undue pressure. My mum turns 65 and also retires after 32 active service years in saving lives at the hospital as a civil servant. There is this excitement in my heart.
Tell us your plan for this Christmas.
I hope to really relax and make the best use of my holiday. I really hardly have time to relax because of the nature of my job. So, at Needlekraft Couture, we wish all our customers a  fantastic holiday as well.

I’m going to be with my family wherever they are. If they decide to spend it here in Lagos, that’s where I will be and if it is my hometown, I will be there too. Then, I’ll probably go for the Calabar carnival.

Tell us your most memorable Christmas.
