Rwanda: The New Times Wishes You Happy Holidays

editorial

TODAY, Christians around the world are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

It is also a day when many people put aside the routine hustle and rejoin family and friends, with whom they exchange presents and toast to their health and relationship.

Christmas marks the beginning of a week of festivities, culminating with the ushering in of the New Year.

The festive season comes with excitement and partying.

However, over the years, uncontrollable celebration has put lives at risk. This can be avoided if we take extra precaution throughout the festive season.

One of the most reported incidences is drunk driving which has led to accidents - many a time fatal, putting a dark spot on the festivities. Such tragedies can be avoided if we celebrate responsibly.

Furthermore, there is a substantial number of people who may not have the means to celebrate. Take the time to share with the less privileged during this festive season. It may be a small gesture but the impact is quite significant.

The New Times Publications wishes its esteemed readers, clients and the general public a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
