“Firecrackers Killed My Mom On Christmas Day” – Writer, Ifeanyi Chiemeke Recounts

Nigerian writer,  Ifeanyi Chiemeke recounts the loss of his mum 19 years ago on Christmas day.

The 28-year-old revealed she was killed by fire crackers after a guy threw one inside their compound which sent her into shock.

He wrote;

“On this day nineteen years ago, some random guy threw Christmas crackers into our compound interest Warri. 

“My mother, rather hypertensive, went into shock & ran short of breath. 

“She was taken to the hospital. By 4.25am she was pronounced dead. 

“Merry Christmas, mom.

“The jollof rice she made before she passed on was never eaten. 

“I practically don’t eat jollof on December 25. I don’t care much for decors either. 

“This is not about grieving anyways, this is just deep reflection.

“I guess everything changed that day, even if I don’t admit it

“Sometimes I imagine it’s still Dec 24, 2000 and my entire life so far is a vision of the future and she’s threatening not to give me Christmas salad if I don’t know the dishes, but I guess that’s how bargaining as a stage of grief looks like. Should have washed those plates.”

Ifeanyi also wrote about how it hurts because he can’t relate when people talk about their mothers. He also advised people with mothers to be grateful and treasure what they’ve got.
