Igbos And Their Christmas Love. by uihebom: 1:58pm On Dec 25, 2012
What is it with igbos and chritsmas?. They celebrate chritsmas more than any other in the world. i was wondering why a foreign culture could go down well with a group of people so much that you may think it originated from igboland. Why is christmas so special especially among igbos and why do they always travel [/b]to their [b]mother land for it?. 90% of the Nigerian work force in my hospital that will be off duty this december are ibos . Their love for christmas is unparalleled even when economy is hitting hard. What do igbos see in christmas?.

Do they know it's oyibo culture?.

Do they have any other festival in igboland that they celebrate half as they celebrate christmas?.


Why must they buy a new car, house etc for christmas?

Do you have a problem with that? Maybe we igbos should start celebrating muslim sallah if that makes you happy.

You sound like you are pissed. I think it has to do with catholic having a very strong root in Igboland and let's face it the catholic church celebrates christmas like no other church.

Another anti-Igbo thread. @OP: in the spirit of one-Nigeria, why not travel to Igbo land and see things for urself

Envy!
Igbos here! Igbos there!
Igbos travel from their rotten villages it becomes a problem; Igbos travel back problem.
Igbos buy new car with their money - waste of money; Igbos invest their money - Igbos are stingy.
Igbos celebrate Christmas - importers of foreign religion; Igbos celebrate Ikeji/Ofala/New Yam Festival - archaic people.
Igbos this! Igbos that!

Merry Christmas everyone except sexkillz

Igbos have never really respected their own cultures. If you watch them you will see they're more likely to celebrate other cultures than their own. Let us not forget that the Igbos have no real history before the arrival of the colonialists. The white man turned the Igbos from common village cannibals into the people you see today. That's why the Igbos would prefer to give their children fancy English names instead of Igbo names.

I understand the OP's woes. He's missing Igbos in his hometown. Maybe there looks like desert now. He might have walked for 1 mile just to buy a cup of rice. Their streets now echo like equalizer. Even their express roads is now the safest place for kids to play football undecided

One of those attension seekers in the house. U sound funny and jealous but when I worked in owerri some years back, we had people working with us from the west and the north and they were also always travelling for christmas, so i wonder what ur point in opening this thread is?

Well said. When people have no history they adopt foreign ones thats why in a struggle for discovery they claimed they are Jews. Imagine that. They adopt foreign cultures easily because they dont have anything local to them to celebrate. Before the coming of Europeans they were forest and cave dwellers who eat fellow human beings

They adopt foreign names because they are ashamed of their own native names e.g Names of Current Igbo governors

ROCHAS Okorocha, SULLIVAN Chime, PETER Obi, MARTIN Elechi, THOEDORE Orji compare that to SW where those who have foreign names relegate them to the middle

Going thru the OP's post history it is not hard to see what he represents here on NL. He is trying to potray ibos as succesful but doing it thru the backdoor. I wonder where else we have 90% ibos working if not in okrika market and **** industry.
Re: Igbos And Their Christmas Love. by Crayola1: 7:51pm On Dec 25, 2012
I guess the Japanese are culture-less too because they make a big deal about Christmas too, despite having 1-2% of the population being Christian.

You folks need to find a hobby or find the quickest method to off yourself if you have nothing better to do but be miserable.

Idio.ts crying more than the bereaved.

For people who say they dont care about Igbo people, the name Igbo seems to be on your mind all the damn time.

Majority of Igbos are Christians(Roman Catholics) - perhaps, that is why they celebrate Christmas the way they do...

I generally hate your posts but this one got my attention. Most Governors in Nigeria have either Arabic/Islamic or English/Christian names. Adams, Emmanuel, Liyel, Sullivan, Peter, Raji, Rauf etc.
