Birthday Celebrations from Nigeria

    In Nigeria the 1st, 5th, 10th and 15th birthdays are considered special events. On these birthdays they have huge parties which have up to 100 guests or more.

    On their birthdays they have a feast consisting or an entire roasted cow or goat. They also serve a dish called jollof rice, this is made with rice, tomatoes, red peppers, and onions plus also cassava which is similar to sweet potato.

    At their birthday parties, children play a game known as Pass the Parcel. Guests pass around the package to music and when the music stops the person holding the package unwraps the parcel then passes it on until the last bit of paper is taken off the prize.

    Most Nigerians speak English but might also speak their own tribul language such as Ibo, Hausa Yoruba.
