Holiday is Coming, Holiday is Coming!


.......Sorry oh, I just remembered one razz song we sang in our primary school and I dare not say which! (But if you want the lyrics to the song just email me). Hehehe so Happy Holidays everyone! This is the first time I am celebrating an all-round official holiday on Naija to the Core lol cos we had Thanksgiving, bla and bla but Christmas, to me, is an official holiday - don't care what anyone else thinks. Like how my cousin was telling me, his company (a very big, global newspaper firm) have changed the title of their Office's Christmas Party to End of Year Party i.e. there shouldn't be Christmas in the phrase as it is offensive to some - ARE THEY FRIGGIN MAD?! They shouldn't get me started...just like how they won't be calling Hot Cross Buns, Hot Cross Buns anymore...probably just Hot Buns! Imagine!



Anyways forget that side, so I suppose a lot of us will be spending Christmas with family - all over, abroad and in Nigeria. Unfortunately, I am turning my attention towards Nigeria as I will be going there by God's grace and also because this blog is called Naija to the Core lol. For those going back home for Christmas, your itineraries must be full (like mine) as there is always so much to do and if you don't know then you have come to the right place.

I have several resources for Nigeria this Christmas:

  • LagosLive website gives you a guide to the Best Beaches and Resorts this Christmas.
  • You can do a lot of your shopping at The Palms in Lekki - which also has a bar, cinema, gaming store and supermarket.
  • Taureanminx gives you some insight on what to do in Lagos and getting around in Lagos - very useful info.
  • NaijaVixen has all the details and flyers of parties in Nigeria.




  • Lagos is not the only place to go to you know! I also have info on something going on in Port-Harcourt, our younger generation are really doing big things! (more on that next week). Check out On Angel's Wings being held at the Shell Club in Port-Harcourt.

  • If you are a member of facebook, you can find a list of events being held in and around Lagos - just login and search for Lagos in All Networks and click on the Events tab and you'll find stuff going on at:
  1. Tanjia (website)
  2. Saga VIII
  3. AstroTurf 2000
  4. The Vault
  5. VGC Sports Centre
  6. Eko Hotels and Suites (website)
  7. SilverBird Galleria (website)
  8. Churassco
  9. British International School (website)
  10. TerraKulture (website)

Amazing innit? More info next week! Have a good weekend and safe journey to those already travelling or travelling within a week! xxx
