This holiday is a time for family and reconnecting with loved ones. For a lot of people, this can be awkward because they’ve been apart for long. If you don’t know what to do with all your family members this festive season, we’ve made a list for you.

Tea time 

You could still make a cup of tea and sip with your family, but that’s not what we mean. Now that you finally are on  a break from work, there’s no better time to share all the hot gossip you’ve accumulated over the past 4352 days.

Start a transport business

Have you seen how much transportation costs these days? Take someone’s vehicle, make your favourite family member your co-pilot, and make great yuletide memories.

Watch TV together

DSTV and GOtv have a holiday pop-up channel and a ton of shows premiering this season, there’s no better time to gather your family around the TV and subscribe to a DSTV or GOtv plan than now. They have shows like Nwunye Bekee, coming on December 23, The Theory of Breakfast, which premiers on January 1 and Unscripted

which premieres on January 3.

If you don’t have a TV, there’s also GOtv stream, download it on your phone and stream away.

Games night

It might end in a fight, because someone’s decided they’re too old to be beaten in Ludo, but you’re guaranteed a good 30 minutes of fun before the proverbial kasala burst. Alternatively, you can get more fun ideas from TV game shows. We recommend Indomie Love Bowl Game Show, the New Arewa Game Show, and Celebrity Game Face.

Eat together

The best memories come from sitting around a table or floor and sharing food and snacks. The best gist also comes up during this time. Spend it wisely.

Attend concerts together

Take the entire family on a trip to see their favourite artists this Detty December. The artist might start 10 hours later than expected, but at least you’ll have new suffering to bond over with them.
