Let’s play a game! (You are supposed to cheer and agree. No groaning, please!) Many people have asked about what it is like to celebrate Christmas in Ghana. I think that it would be very easy to contrast it with an American Christmas. I like having conversations and don’t get the opportunity to dialog with many people so I thought we could turn this into a game and create our own conversation. Are you with me? Great! Here’s how it goes: I will make a statement about my Christmas here in Ghana and you leave a comment on the same topic about your Christmas here in America. I’ll hop down into the comments section and we’ll just keep on adding to it.
For my Christmas, the grocery stores do not restock the shelves and the choices become fewer and fewer leading up to the holiday.
(Now you respond telling me something about your grocery store at Christmas time. GO!)
Update: I’m having fun with our short conversations in the comments. I thought I should add a little more detail here. Many people travel back to their home villages for Christmas and the shops are closed. I think this is why they don’t replenish their stock.
