Our Christmas celebration is different contrary to popular belief. Here are some of the peculiar points:
There is no snow just the scorching sun and blazing heat. Today is cloudy hopefully there will be rain.
We don’t keep a christmas tree. However they are sold in shops but its very rare to see one in a Tswana home.
Instead of Christmas carols we have traditional songs which are called dikwaere. Teams gather and compete with song; dancing in unison.
There is a huge meal prepared and shared with everyone who passes by. Batswana cook a lot of meat dishes and ginger beer. Christmas is a sharing time.
That is it for now. Tomorrow is another day.
