CHRISTMAS VACATION 2013

#CHRISTMAS

Christmas is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate Christmas Day as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. December 25–Christmas Day–has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1870.

#SANTACLAUS
The man we know as Santa Claus has a history all his own. Today, he is thought of mainly as the jolly man in red, but his story stretches all the way back to the third century. Find out more about the history of Santa Claus from his earliest origins to the shopping mall favorite of today.

#CHRISTMAS #FACTS
Each year, 30-35 million real Christmas trees are sold in the United States alone. There are 21,000 Christmas tree growers in the United States, and trees usually grow for about 15 years before they are sold.

Today, in the Greek and Russian orthodox churches, Christmas is celebrated 13 days after the 25th, which is also referred to as the Epiphany or Three Kings Day. This is the day it is believed that the three wise men finally found Jesus in the manger.

In the Middle Ages, Christmas celebrations were rowdy and raucous—a lot like today’s Mardi Gras parties.

From 1659 to 1681, the celebration of Christmas was outlawed in Boston, and law-breakers were fined five shillings.

Christmas was declared a federal holiday in the United States on June 26, 1870.

The first eggnog made in the United States was consumed in Captain John Smith‘s 1607 Jamestown settlement.

Poinsettia plants are named after Joel R. Poinsett, an American minister to Mexico, who brought the red-and-green plant from Mexico to America in 1828.

The Salvation Army has been sending Santa Claus-clad donation collectors into the streets since the 1890s.

Rudolph, “the most famous reindeer of all,” was the product of Robert L. May‘s imagination in 1939. The copywriter wrote a poem about the reindeer to help lure customers into the Montgomery Ward department store.

Construction workers started the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree tradition in 1931.

BEACHES IN LAGOS, NIGERIA

The noisy and heavily populated Lagos, Nigeria‘s former capital and largest city, attracts visitors who like to live on the edge. Lagos has its share of crime, yet visitors still come to the bustling city because of its vibrant nightlife, shopping and nearby beaches. Lagos is home to almost a dozen beaches that offer visitors the chance to soak up the sun and surf along West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea.

Getting There

Because Lagos is not a primary choice of travelers leaving from the United States, you will find few direct flights from the U.S. to Lagos. Delta Airlines (delta.com) has offered daily service to Lagos from Atlanta since 2007. Expect to connect in London, Paris or Amsterdam if you fly with a European air carrier. You may also find connecting flights from major cities in South Africa and Nairobi, Kenya. Once you arrive in Lagos, you will find that minibuses and bush taxis are plentiful and an inexpensive way to travel to the area’s beaches from your hotel.

Beach Features

The beaches near Lagos all share many of the same features. You will find powdery white sand, swaying palm trees and an overabundance of large waves. Additionally, the beaches remain relatively quiet throughout the year, except on public holidays when many locals head out to enjoy the sun and water. The beaches closest to the city – especially Bar Beach, which is located within the city – may include some interesting characters such as prostitutes and drug dealers. The farther you go from the city, the more secluded the beaches. Lekki Beach, once a favorite tourist spot found a few miles from Lagos, has struggled with continued erosion because of strong tides and the harvesting of sand for construction.

Best Beaches

Two of the most popular beaches near Lagos are Tarkwa Beach and Eleko Beach. Tarkwa Beach is only a few miles from the city and remains relatively secluded. Although Tarkwa Beach is quiet, it offers visitors a wide selection of shops for food and local handicrafts. The man-made beach is sheltered by a harbor, so there is no undertow, making the water safe for swimming. Lighthouse Beach, another secluded beach near Tarkwa, is famous for its namesake lighthouse, which guards Lagos Harbor. Eleko Beach, a 45-minute taxi ride from downtown Lagos, remains a favorite of the locals. The relatively clean stretch of sand is home to a market where you can purchase local art. Bars and restaurants that cater to tourists are plentiful.

Considerations

Traveling to Nigeria is best left to the experienced world traveler. A travel warning issued by the U.S. Department of State in April 2011 warns U.S. citizens of the risks of traveling to Nigeria. Political and ethnic conflict within Nigeria has resulted in the kidnappings of more than 140 foreign nationals, some of whom were killed. In parts of Lagos, violence can be rampant, especially during the night. Muggings, carjackings, rapes and kidnappings do occur, so visitors must always be aware of their surroundings during their visit and take great care to stay in the safest areas of the city.
