Almost everyone, or even everyone on earth knows the significance of
Christmas in life. It is a day that many wish never to miss.
Celebrating Christmas started very long ago and it will continue till
God decides. Everyone has his/her wishes and dreams about that day,
some come true and unfortunately, others never come true. And it feels
bad not enjoying such a long waited day to one’s expectations,
however, it feels great enjoying it the exact way one wished.
Here are some of the expectations of Christmas from the members of Chrysalis:
Otim Joseph says he feels so happy that Christmas is on its door and
he hopes to feel great on that day, he wants to eat rice and beans on
that day, go to Miami beach, he says he feels bad spending his
Christmas in the village because it is so boring since in the village
you have to first dig if it is not on Sunday, harvest some crops, sell
the harvest-so that you can get money to spend on the day and there
after you remember to celebrate the day. And if you don’t sell the
harvest, then you won’t have the money to spend and enjoy the day. He
says most people like eating meat on Christmas but for his case, he
doesn’t want it, he also wants to travel to lake Victoria and after
then, to enjoy a Christmas party but he’s scared the party and the
going to the beach might not happen.
Awany James who studies from St.Matia Mulumba says he really enjoyed
last Christmas-he went to church and enjoyed the service but the
weather was not very condusive since it had rained which never
impressed him. He says he would like things to change this Christmas
for instance; he wouldn’t like it to rain like it did last Christmas,
he would also like eat better food and drinks and he wishes the day
becomes colourful. He would also like to have fun and visit some
relatives plus friends who stay in different areas.

including having good time with his family, interacting with friends,

never enjoyed the last one to his best because it rained and was a bit
boring . He wishes to enjoy this Christmas with his friends, go to
different places like at Entebbe zoo, eat rice, meat, macrons, drink a
lot of milk and soda and enjoy some music, however, he is scared he
might not be able to go to the zoo because of money problems.
Cosmas Otim(11) says to him, last Christmas was fair because he got to
watch the Christmas Chrysalis Production show of which was very
interesting and unfortunately he didn’t dress the way he wanted. He

Ochola James(15) says he spent last Christmas with his parents and his
siblings of which was good and which got to have unusual but special
