Some interesting feedback I received showed that there is no room for holiday for DIY enthusiasts. One reader gave me some funny examples of how DIY works even during holidays.
"Take for example how we open a bottle using another bottle," he argued.
I could not help but agree with the man. He proudly showed me ways of opening a bottle using a pet bottle and another beverage bottle with a metal lid.
"Brother, do you want me to abandon my car if it fails to start just because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a holiday? Should I not try to give it a push?" I looked stupid not knowing to say.
Then I thought of the pressing iron. Should we not clean it by placing a tablet of Panadol on its hot surface to remove the stains with a waster just because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a holiday?
What about a loose button on your shirt, should we allow it to fall off just because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Christmas? Surely not. We will take the needle and thread and then fix it.
From the foregoing, I will not Ã¢â‚¬ËœdeclareÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Christmas a holiday because I am convinced DIY does not go to bed.
As I go about my Christmas day activities that include setting foot at a place of worship, I will have you dear reader in mind. It is my wish that we will meet again next year.
May this day, Christmas day, fill your heart with joy, peace and love. May whatever you do be done in such a way that you will not regret later. Do not let your hands be idle please know that the devil finds work for idle hands.
