Christmas is my favourite holiday and I’m usually in a good mood as I am today. The day is always filled with merriment, Iots to eat and drink. I just want to relax and enjoy this special day with my loved ones. As it is, I do not expect anything or anyone to ruin my mood this holiday season because I’ve decided to be happy regardless of the challenges in front of me.

So are you in a good mood today or your mood has been altered by the state of your relationship? When things are going great in our relationships, it reflects in our mood. Some of us beam with smile or are overly happy but when things goes awry we become all moody and cranky. If you’re having such mood swings, your relationship is definitely influencing your mood.

Many don’t even realise the effect their partner has on their mood. When we are deeply in love and emotionally attached to our partners, it is normal for some of us to have our mood altered by the state of our relationship.

I do not feel comfortable, allowing my relationship to determine how I feel or what to feel because it makes me unsettled but sometimes I lack the will power to control my emotions. Nevertheless, it is Christmas and nothing is getting in the way of my joy.

However! on this auspicious holiday, let us put aside our anger or the grudges we have against our partners, family and friends.

Let down your hair and have some fun. Even if you’re spending the day alone and you’re feeling lonely, snap out of it and get your groove on. Be grateful to be alive, cook yourself a great meal. After all it is Christmas and it only comes once in a year. So boogie down and be happy. Let the joy of the festivity control our mood and surround us wiith happiness.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas filled with love. 💝💝💝


This is the time of the year we get to spend with our loved ones but year after year, I’ve stepped into controversy surrounding who best to spend the Christmas and new year holidays with, between your spouse, parents, extended family or close friends.

I’ve seen spouse get mad at each other for one bailing on the other to spend time with his or her own extended family or going away with friends without their spouse tagging along. Parents also feel abandoned by their children during the holidays.

As we all know, the festive season is a family holiday. If you are married, your spouse and kids should be your first priority before any other person. Whatever else you wish to individually do, should be in agreement with your spouse. Even if you’re volunteering for a good cause during the holidays, discuss it with your partner.

We should also not abandon our parents and friends. You can agree with your partner to invite your parents and close friends over or go over to their house with your partner.

Once you’re married, people around you should know that you and your spouse are one body and no one should grudge you for chosing to spend your holidays with your immediate family, which are your spouse and kids. (If kids are involved) I’ve always said that marriage is a big commitment and you must apply wisdom in dealing with issues in your marriage both during the holidays and beyond.

As for a single person, you can choose whoever you like to spend your holidays with. It’s your choice because you’re not under any marital obligation. If you’re in a committed relationship, your partner will definitely expect you to spend the holidays with him or her, but that will be up to you to decide. You’re not obligated to, since there is no ring on it. Regardless of the freedom of choice, consider spending time with your parents if you still have them around, they need us when they are alive.

Well I am going to be spending my holidays with my family. Who are you spending yours with?

In the spirit of this season, let’s keep the flame of love burning.

Happy holidays.🎄🎄🎄
