Gulu Prepares For Christmas


Traditionally in Acholi, Christmas preparation starts few days ahead of the main day. Here, the community gets involved in family meetings in preparation for the big day where plans to make local brew are hatched and woman are entrusted with role of house, home and compound cleaning as the family wait for x-mas day. Just like any other community, Acholi takes Christmas as a day of enjoyment, sharing and coming to together to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Benson Ongom covers some of the early preparations in Acholi.
