9 Things EVERY Nigerian Must do On New Year’s Eve

Watch fireworks as the clock strikes 12

Fireworks are a tradition in Nigeria, and they’re used to celebrate many different holidays. On New Year’s Eve, the fireworks are meant to bring good luck. Fireworks were also used to celebrate independence day and other national holidays.

Fireworks are believed by many people in Nigeria as symbols of hope and prosperity for the future.

Eat black eyed peas for good luck

  • Eat black eyed peas for good luck.
  • Black-eyed peas are traditionally eaten on New Year’s Eve and they represent the color of money, which is why they’re so popular in the United States. They’re also considered a good luck food because they are supposed to bring prosperity and wealth into your home in 2019, so if you want your finances to improve this year, then make sure you’re eating some black-eyed peas tonight!
  • Prepare them according to these instructions: Place some dried black-eyed peas in a pot with enough water so that it covers them by an inch or two (about 2 cups). Bring them up to boiling over medium heat before lowering the heat and simmering until tender but not mushy (about 15 minutes). Drain off any excess liquid from your cooked beans before serving hot or cold with butter or olive oil drizzled over top if desired; alternatively try adding sliced onions after draining as well as other spices such as cumin seeds which have long been believed by Native Americans throughout North America including those living here within our own state of Texas.”

Watch the Nigerian New Year’s Eve Show

The Nigerian New Year’s Eve Show is a popular TV show that has been running since the 1980s. It’s broadcast on national television and features a variety of performances, including music, comedy and traditional Nigerian music.

Attend a party at a friend’s house.

  • Invite friends to your house.
  • Don’t have a party at home.
  • Don’t invite people who are not your friends.
  • Don’t invite people who you don’t know very well.
  • Don’t invite people who don’t like each other, or at least pretend to get along for the sake of your guests’ enjoyment and/or sanity (it’s New Year’s Eve–the last thing anyone needs is another fight).

Go to church if you’re a Christian.

There is no better way to start the New Year than by attending church, especially if you’re a Christian. It’s important to be with family and friends at this time of celebration, so don’t forget to invite your loved ones too!

If you don’t know where your local church is located or how to get there, use Google Maps or any other similar app on your smartphone. You can also look up churches in your area on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter or even ask one of your friends who has attended before where they go every year for midnight mass/prayer service etc.

Listen to music all night long.

The night is young and there’s so much to do! You can listen to music from the past, present or future. You can even listen to music from around the world and around your neighborhood. The best part? It doesn’t matter where it comes from because if it makes you feel good, then that’s all that matters.

Celebrate with family and friends.

You are not alone in the world. You have a family and friends who love you, so make sure to celebrate with them!

If possible, get together with your loved ones on New Year’s Eve. If this is not possible or they live far away from you, then try calling them or texting them. Even if they are busy celebrating with other people, just send them a message saying how much you miss them and how excited you are for 2019!

Make new resolutions for yourself.

The New Year is a time for reflection and resolution. As you look back at the year gone by, think of all the things that you want to change in your life. Write them down and make sure they are achievable, realistic and measurable. Your resolutions should be specific and time bound so that they can be tracked easily if they are not achieved by their respective deadlines.

It’s important to remember that while making resolutions is important, sticking with them is equally crucial!

It’s time to ring in another year!

New Year’s Eve is the time to reflect on the past year and prepare for the next one. It’s a celebration of all things new, so it only makes sense that your New Year’s Eve should be filled with fun activities and traditions that help you welcome in this new chapter of your life!

You can’t just sit at home watching Netflix while everyone else is out having fun at their parties or bars. You need to make sure you’re getting out there too, so here are some ideas:
