Christmas Da Christmas is held on December 25 each year, and is an important festival for Christians since it celebrates the birth of Jesus. Calabar Carnival This is a newer addition to the annual festival calendar of Nigeria. It first was celebrated in 2006. Although it is held annually and is dubbed Nigeria’s largest street party.It is a month long carnival from December 1 to 31 every year, and has a program of events including dancing, music, and other cultural events. Nigeria boasts of a plethora of customs and traditions, cultures and festivals, that would appeal to the tastes of the average tourist. In the Northern States of the country the cultures and traditions of the people who are mainly Hausa/Fulani, Nupe, Kanuri, Igalaand Tiv are governed by the Musfim religious traditions.

Presidential system, Federal republic, and the federation are the government types that the Nigeria government uses. Currency: Nigerian naira, GDP per capita: 3,005.51 USD (2013) World Bank, Gross domestic product: 521.8 billion USD (2013) World Bank, GDP growth rate: 5.4% annual change (2013) World Bank, gross national income: 930.2 billion PPP dollars (2013) World Bank, GNI per capita: 5,360 PPP dollars (2013) World Bank, and nternet users: 38.0% of the population (2013) World Bank. These are the economic lay out of Nigeria and it shows you the percentage (%) and how many people are there and all of that. An interesting fact about Nigeria's government is that they are the most populous nation which I think is pretty cool and I'm sure that they get a lot of tourist there. Nigeria has sought to improve its macroeconomic stability and develop its poor infrastructure, I think this is a cool fact because it is something they are working on to make there government and economy better as a whole and could just help them with much more. The government has struggled to end ongoing security threats in some parts of the country that have exacerbated poverty and unemployment, which I think is cool because if they fix that they would be safer and no a easy target to a threat.

"The number of people killed in an accidental military bombing at a Nigerian camp for displaced people has increased to 70, aid groups said on Wednesday, with at least nine of them humanitarian workers.

Accidental bombing

"In a two-room concrete house on the outskirts of this city along the airport road, Abdulrahman Adam’s 21-month-old body trembled as he struggled to keep down what little food he had in him.

This is something that needs to be helped because baby's and people could starve to deal th because not being able to eat.

Baby's that are sick when eating

I think that everyone should travel to Nigeria to help them. Help them with food and bring them clothes and help them build houses and things like that. I feel like helping Nigeria and building them new homes and school and bring them supplies for schooling and bring food so they can eat and become healthy and try and find a place to plant crops to be able to eat.

Traveling to Nigeria

Nigeria is extremely strict and wants everything to be in perfection. You must give 100% to them and have a decent relationship with the teachers. They say that Nigeria classes are harder than the classes in the US, say "it's all about drilling information into your head. Having fun isn't part of the routine." See now in the US there are times we have during classes but in Nigeria it is different because like I said they want everything to perfection. For fun Nigeria teenagers play and/or watch football. Teenagers list to reggea, hip hop, and gospel music. They wear a dress type jacket thing and pants with either sandals or no shoes.
