13 Things That Are True For Non-Muslim Nigerians This Ramadan

July 6, 2016

1. When you hear Ramadan, and you’re already thinking of the 2-day public holiday at the end of it.

God bless you guys!

2. And all the food that you’ll be going around eating.

Imma need these days to move fast.

3. When they finally announce the public holidays and it’s not a long weekend.

What’s all these?

4. How you greet all your Muslim acquaintances.

Where that meat at?

5. When you dress up on Eid day and people start asking if you’re a Muslim too.

No, I’m just going to eat.

6. When you see your Muslim friends receiving Sallah money from their relatives.

Y’all get Sallah money? Why don’t Christians give Easter money though?

7. When you’re keeping an eye on your neighbor’s house to know when they start serving the meat, so you’ll ‘unintentionally’ walk past.

Don’t mind me. Just running an errand.

8. When you hear some people saying this is not the ram holiday.

Are you kidding me? Are we here to joke?

9. You, yesterday, when the government added one more day to the public holidays.

Yass!!!

10. When you secretly wish that they won’t still sight the moon so that Friday can be a public holiday too.

The moon should lost please.

11. But now you’re confused about which day to go about eating.

Is it today or tomorrow?

12. When your boss calls to ask if you can manage to come to work on Thursday.

NO!

13. When you finally get the reward you’ve been waiting for.

Happy Eid!!!
