"To have all your Christmases come at once" has long been an expression which means to experience an event of extreme luck or happiness. However, Nito Chivukuvuku would say otherwise.
Native to an obscure part of Angola, 37 year Nito had practically no awareness of Christmas or Western religions until he moved to Britain to improve his living conditions in mid 2011. A conversion to Christianity and immersion in Western culture followed, but Nito may have not been so quick to fit in had he known what was in store.
On the 25th of December 2011, Nito experienced all 37 Christmases that were due him. He received a bill for over $40,000 for gifts, mostly Swarovski animals, and found his bank cards 800% in overdraft. His health deteriorated with the sudden gaining of approximately 40 kgs in weight due to the accumulated sweets and Christmas puds and a massive strain on his heart and nerves due to the intense concentration of unpleasant behaviour in parking lots and shops. Mental health also deteriorated as 37 four month lots of terrible shopping mall Christmas music went through his head in the space of a day. The social awkwardness of receiving 37 lots of ludicrously unwanted bath oils from each of his friends did not improve matters and he became almost unable to move through his apartment which is still knee deep in tinsel and fake plastic trees, while his fuse box blew from struggling to run so many sets of lights at once.
It has taken until now for Nito to speak about his experience as it took him several months to recover from 37 massive hangovers, not to mention the severe mental torpor induced by enduring 37 interminable Christmas church services back to back.
