In Nigeria, the culture of crossing over is such an important one that people begin celebrating the New Year on December 31, New Year’s Eve. The tradition of counting down the last-minute or final seconds of the year is the highlight of New Year’s Eve.
Are you looking for ways to crossover to the new year? Here are five ideas:
Have Fun at Home:
Chilling at home may be super boring if you are stuck all by yourself at home. Spice up your New Year’s Eve by either setting up a board games night or having a sleepover with friends. You can Skype with relatives and friends you missed all through the year. You can also host a dinner party in your home because sometimes all you need is good food, good wine, and good friends.
Attend a Party:
A special way to slide into the New Year is rocking at a party. What better way to celebrate the breakthroughs, successes of the previous year, and herald 2018? You can also go out with your friends.
One Lagos Countdown Fiesta:
One place you should not miss in crossing over to the New Year is the Lagos Countdown. Every year, millions of people gather to experience the biggest New Year Countdown Festival at the Bar Beach. With lots of celebrities in attendance, there would be performances leading into the New Year before the shouts of Happy New Year flood the air and fireworks are displayed to celebrate the year. Last year had several small events held before.
Set up A Fancy Cinema at your home:
Usher in the New Year with your family members cuddled up, with your pillows and popcorn, watching your favorite movies. You can make use of a projector and a good sound system to enjoy the better of two worlds or you can just go to a cinema close to your neighborhood.
Attend a Crossover Night Service: Well, New Year Eve in Nigeria is synonymous with going to churches for crossover service to receive predictions, prophesies and prayer for the New Year. Everyone expects you to be there, even if you haven’t been to church all year-long./
