CHRISTMAS PREPARATION WITHOUT STRESS

The season of Xmas is usually a great and long awaited season irrespective of your religious status. Asides the fact that it’s a big celebration for the Christians, it usually signal the close of the year and ushers in a new year. As we grew up, Christmas and new year to us is separated by weeks of preparation and celebration but in a normal sense the difference is just a matter of seconds. The big difference in the realms of reality is that most people don’t live up to the last second and so we have to imbibe wisdom in all our dealings this season both with people around us and to ourselves.

Making ends meet has really taken lives and will continue to take because of the absence of a virtue called “patience”.  It’s Christmas/end of the year and so they must make it by all means.  We must be careful of where we go and our kids should be given a closer watch this Y’ello-tide season as men of the underworld are roaming about seeking whom to devour. Our men should endeavor not to keep late nights nor embark on any unplanned journey.

Ritualists are at it again and they make use of anybody not only the kids this time; so we have to be smart and know the kind of places we go or what we eat and educate our kids on the danger of receiving gifts from strangers or even friends. Parents should also avoid sending their wards errands at night or late hours.

As a business man, ignore that man asking you to borrow him some amount of money to pay back in double Or with some interest; he might just be a “419”. He might elope with your money and leave you in a worst state..  Even if he is your friend or the richest man in your community,  think twice before you do.  Don’t involve yourself into any business simply because they say it doubles any amount you put. My brother if you will make it,  it mustn’t come in such manner and at such time. They are dubious people; ignore text messages from any source requesting to do business with you as a result of huge amount involved. It might come in various form so please use your brain.

These is always a lot of drama being staged this period.  Most people sell all they have in other to travel home and pretend to be what they are not. Such people are part of the people who sell everything in their shop to buy a car to drive home and return back to the city the other year to sell the car and start life a fresh. Some even go to the extent of money rituals either with human blood or rendering a part of their body useless only to immerse wealth.

If you want to enjoy your celebration, imbibe these few rules and abide by them.

  1. PLAN/BUDGET YOUR SPENDING
    -Its never late to start planning.  It’s better you travel and be yourself than to come back and be a debtor. If the journey is not feasible, cancel it.
  2. SPEND ON YOUR PRIMARY NEEDS
    -Most people thinks owning a car is all they need. Discover your primary needs and if a car is minor, scrap it.

  3. REDUCE YOUR SPENDING
    -Ration the things you need and reduce the number of days you intend to spend either you are going with your family or alone.

  4. REDUCE CASH AT HAND
    -Don’t go out with much money on you because you might just be tempted to spend on old time friends. You and I know that no amount is too small to prove your level has changed.

  5. ENTERTAIN VISITORS INDOOR
    -Rather than taking friends out for entertainment, bring them home. It accords you more respect and saves more cash.

These are the four main laws although a word they say is enough for the wise.  These points are not subdivided but I believe you can get the direction each law is pointing at. Safe journey as you move around this period and i pray no harm shall be fall us. 

Happy Xmas and new year in advance!!!
