Nigerians generally look forward to weekends for different seasons. For some, it presents them with the opportunity to rest after a hectic week,while for others, its just another day out of work.
But even in the midst of this, there are certain things Nigerians do EVERY Saturday and we will unveil them one after the other.
Every Saturday in Lagos and Nigeria at large, there is a wedding ceremony, birthday or an anniversary celebration going on somewhere. It presents people with an opportunity to felicitate with family and friends and also to unwind after a hectic week in the office or at work.
As long as the league (EPL, La liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, NPFL) season is on, Nigerians, particularly the men, always look forward to a good weekend of football.
Yea, Saturday afternoons and evenings are the time for choir meetings, usher meetings and departmental meetings generally in preparation for Sunday.
“HOUSE CLEANING AND COOKING FOR THE WEEK.”
Considering that we are in the 21st century where Nigerian women are also actively involved in the labour market and corporate world and hardly have enough time to cook good food for their husband and children during the week due to work, Saturdays is always a welcome development.
These days, people just get really good deep freezers and stock them with the different soups and stew they cook during the weekend for the new week.
Also, it is on Saturday people do their laundry and all the house cleaning.
“TIME OUT WITH THE FAMILY.”
Well, considering the stress from work and traffic situation in some parts of Nigeria, parents hardly have enough time with their children during the week. Atimes, the kids don’t even see their parents before going to bed.
So, Saturdays is a good opportunity for some families to hang out together and spend sometime together either in the home or outside.
You don’t always have to do the expensive getaway, sometimes this might just be all you need…
It’s your choice really…
