1. Too noisy

Lagos on a daily is very noisy but it's worse in December. Trust me, if you love your peace, Lagos isn't for you during Christmas.

Loud booming music can be heard from every nook and cranny. Even low-income earners will throw a party.

2. Everything automatically becomes expensive

Down to a bottle of water, festive season in Lagos means everything will become exorbitant.

A bag of rice can go for N20,000 and more. Even the price of cooking gas goes up.

3. An opportunity to visit your family

The holiday also provides an opportunity for you to go visit your loved ones back in your state.

Take the time off to go visit granny whom you haven't seen in 11 months.

4. Lagos is boring

Chances are you have probably been everywhere already so December wouldn't change anything. Rather you would find yourself doing the same thing over and over again.

Go on a road trip with friends, explore other parts of Nigeria and you won't be sorry.
