How You May Enjoy This Christmas Safely In the Pandemic

Christmas is coming soon. It is a rest season; it is end of year and it is a celebration month.

While this is a day specifically for the Christians, other people utilize the long holidays to take a break and rest from their busy day to day jobs or businesses. They also use the same time to catch up with relatives they haven’t seen in a long time. As you prepare to join your dear ones this festive season in this pandemic, here are some tips on how to enjoy to the fullest but also safe from this corona pandemic.

Stay Safe: Kina Repp a renowned advocate for health and safety in society says, “You are your last line of defense in safety. It boils down to you.” This is true and necessary especially in this season where Covid -19 is still killing people and many people are still talking and creating conspiracy theories around the vaccination against Covid-19.

Averagely Uganda is registering 79 cases and 1 death as of 10th November, 2021. This means that Covid-19 is still with us. This calls for personal responsibility to protect ourselves and our loved ones. You will also be safer and secure if you vaccinate at any of the designated centers by the Ministry of Health.

Rest and relax: It has been a long year with days of lockdown, busy with children at home and with too much work and mental challenges for those who were affected and infected with Covid-19. If you are reading this, it means God’s hand has been upon you. Take a break and rest. Uganda has many places that are convenient for both local and international visitors.

Here are some of the best destinations that I have visited;

Queen Elizabeth National Park Located in western Uganda, Famous for its exotic wildlife, the park is home to many elephants, hippos, Congo lions, African Leopards, chimpanzees and 95 species of mammals. Bird-watchers will be delighted to learn that the park also houses 500 species of birds. Come see two of the park’s main attractions: the tree-climbing lion and its volcanic features, like volcanic cones and deep craters. Services that are available include a telecentre, boat launches, park lodges, games and scenic drives.

You will experience an extraordinary natural beauty, hiking, spectacular water falls a variety of flora and fauna with great captivating scenery.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park forms part of the Bwindi impenetrable Forest which is one of the richest ecosystems in Africa. Has over 200 species of trees, 120 species of mammals, 27 species of frogs, geckos and chameleons 220 species of butterflies, 348 species of birds and other endangered species in their natural habitat.

Avoid distractions: During Christmas holidays, Uganda registers many crimes and accidents. You can avoid these distractions by travelling early and during the day. Install security measures to keep your residences safe

It is important that if you are driving, you carry your driving permit to avoid getting in trouble with the law enforcers.

Play your favorite music to set the mood for the rest and for the season. They say that music is the universal language of mankind. Bring positivity with music. This will lift your spirit; bring peace and calmness and positive thoughts.

To sum it up, make this a season of reconnecting with yourself and your loved ones. Let love be at the center of your celebration. At the heart of everything man is and does is love. For the most part of the year, most of us tend to be too busy and too fast to love on ourselves and those around us. Slow down to receive and express love this holiday season. And most importantly, reconnect with the one who is LOVE Himself. Make God the reason for the season, because indeed He is.
