In this annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ and the beginning of the new year 2017, President Paul Kagame and his family wish all a happy and peaceful festive season.
The Christmas considered as the birth of son of God, observed most commonly on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.
Through his Twitter account, kagame reveals gratitude to wish everyone a happy and peaceful festive. “Jeanette, family and I Wish You All a Happy and Peaceful this Festive Season….together with Your Loved Ones!!”
It is the last end year festive season before the end of his second presidential term as next election schedule on 3rd and 4th August 2017, the election kagame will bid after the constitution amended lately in 2015 to allow him more chances to lead the country.
Kagame expected to deliver an annual opening speech. At the beginning of 2016, he openly responded to then Rwandans requests asking him to bid for third term.
Christmas during the Middle Ages was a public festival that incorporated ivy, holly, and other evergreens. Christmas gift-giving during the Middle Ages was usually between people with legal relationships, such as tenant and landlord.
The annual indulgence in eating, dancing, singing, sporting, and card playing escalated in England, and by the 17th century the Christmas season featured lavish dinners, elaborate masques, and pageants.
To most Africans, this day has got little to do with its religious significance and everything to do with over indulgence in food and drink, and general merrymaking. Although a Western concept, Africans love Christmas more than any other continent.
