In an Instagram post, media personality, Daddy Freeze explained why he does not engage in the Christmas celebration which is widely recognized amongst Christians.
Taking to his Instagram page, the Controversial OAP stated some reasons; one of which was that he does not want to associate himself with the way the colonialists defined the black people.
Read his full post below:
“Here is why y’all won’t get a Christmas message from me or from the #FreeNation.
I refuse to identify with how the colonialists and slave masters define us as black people.
We can’t have Black Lives Matter on the tips of our tongues and say Merry Christmas in the same breath.”
Daddy Freeze wrote further;
Until the western world makes our Argungun fishing festival or New Yam festival national holidays, I refuse to celebrate their syncretism and paganism.
25th of December is NOT even a holiday in Israel the Land of Christ’s birth, people are at work today in Jerusalem, so I really don’t get why we black people should celebrate oyinbo people’s pagan festivals? 🤷
In other news, Ifu Ennada has explained why she does not celebrate Christmas despite being a Christian.
The Big Brother star took to the Instastories section of her official Instagram page to disclose that since there’s nowhere in the Bible where December 25 was mentioned as Jesus’ birthday; she sees absolutely no reason for the celebration.
Ifu Ennada also added that it is best to be grateful to God; and try to be a good human every day of one’s life; than waiting to celebrate a particular day of the year.
