Spending your Sallah break with loved ones

Happy Eid-el-fitr

Sallah is celebrated in style with loved ones. Some even go out with family and friends for a proper celebration.

It is usually celebrated for two days and is declared as a nationwide holiday in most countries, especially Nigeria. On these days when you are off work and the kids are away from school, you can make it a fun and exciting time for everyone.


Perhaps you haven’t given so much thought to it. Hence, here are five things you can do this Sallah break with family members/friends.

Go on a picnic at one of the parks – Rather than do family gatherings at home, you and your loved ones can go to the park for an enjoyable picnic.

Kayaking – This is one of the fun things that should be added to your to-do list this holiday. If you live in Abuja, you can find a kayaking lake just behind the national stadium where kayaks can be rented and you can paddle lazily on the lake or challenge your friends to a quick water race. Whatever you decide to do, you will definitely have a soothing experience.

Parks and Zoos – When it comes to keeping the kids entertained, parks are the best places to go to. With a variety of restaurants, swings, and even slides, your kids will definitely love visiting the parks irrespective of your location. However, the age of the kids need to be taken into consideration because there are lot of fun things to do in the parks and zoos.

Resting at home – If you are not the type that doesn’t feel inclined to go out, then your best option would be to go back home after prayers, eat, then sleep or better still watch movies.

Have a wonderful Eid celebration!!!
