As Christmas approaches, BBnaija star Maria Chike has delivered a vital message to Nigerians. Maria questioned the cultural practice of Nigerians placing boxes and gifts under Christmas trees.

She clarified that Santa departs the North Pole on December 24 to bring gifts to children. Maria urged them to quit copying others and start appreciating the true meaning of Christmas.

“Why am I seeing gift boxes and present under y’all Christmas trees?? Did you forgot Santa leaves the North Pole on the 24th and down your roof/chimney to drop off the presents? Y’all so funny. Understand the spirit of Christmas, just don’t do it cause others are”.
