May Day, Workers’ Day or Labour Day, is a public holiday celebrated in many countries across the world. While it usually occurs in May, the date varies across countries. However, here in Nigeria, May 1st is a constant.
So how can you get the best of this holiday knowing full well that it’s just a day? Check out the list of activities below for the one that interests you most!
1. Host Indoor Games
Invite friends and neighbours to come and play games. Put your PS5, chess boards, cards or karaoke machines to serious work. It will be good, inexpensive fun with your favourite people.
2. Give yourself/ family a treat
So you don’t want to spend the day locked up with the family because it will seem boring for everyone? Then go to Ibom Hall in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and see a fantastic stage play by Duke of Shomolu Production titled Ibiom: When Doves Fly featuring Ini Edo! It is sponsored by MTN Foundation and promises to be your best theatre experience yet. If you are elsewhere in Nigeria and cannot make it to Uyo, you can purchase tickets online and enjoy the experience virtually. Get your tickets here.
3. Create your own adventure at the LCC
For nature lovers looking for a bit of adventure, the Lekki Conservation Centre is the place to be. There are fun activities you can try out including picnicking, sight-seeing, tree climbing, volleyball and the famous canopy walk. We must warn you though: the longest canopy walk in Africa is not for the faint-hearted.
4. Pamper yourself. You deserve it
Treat yourself to a day of rest and relaxation. You can give yourself a beauty treatment, facials, massages, manicures, pedicures and makeovers. You can lodge in a hotel to enjoy a different atmosphere and you can also opt to spend the day at a spa with your friends instead.
5. Learn something new
Try out something you have never done before with either friends or family. Try painting, swimming, fishing, reading, etc. YOLO!
We leave you with the following very important words to live by: Try dey enjoy. Problem no dey finish.
