Back in the day, every Kenyan child had those days they anxiously waited for – be it Christmas when we all got new clothes, or closing day when our folks bought ice-cream for us.
Let us throw it way back to these moments when we were kids and life was gucci.
Christmas and new year holiday
These were the moments we got to eat chapatis, sodas, juices and other special meals like meat. The best part of it all was going shopping for new clothes and shoes. The houses could be decorated with balloons and flowers as it was a special day.
Visitors dropping by
Visitors were valued back then. They used to bring gifts along with them whenever they visited. This also gave you a chance to feed on very special meal such an meat because it was in plenty whenever they visited. Before the visitors left, they would most often than not give kids money.
Besides going to church this was another resting day. You could wear your best clothes and be allowed to spend the whole day at the church. It was better for one to spend the whole day at church than staying at home where your parent would bother you with housework.
Going for holiday trips
This was the time you could visit new places and get to see new things that you never saw before. You could also get a chance to play all sorts of games with other people and make new friends.
This was the moment when you could meet almost all your relatives, regardless of where they lived.
The ones that came from the cities were normally valued more and treated with respect.
