People in Kenya who believe that December 25 is the actual date on which Jesus Christ was born traditionally celebrate Christmas on that date each and every year. However, Kenyans' responses on social media have been impacted as a result of Analyst Stephen Mutoro's open letter to Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof. Kithure Kindiki. In the letter, Mutoro requested that the celebrations be moved from December 25 to December 27, and he urged that this change take place.
In the event that a public holiday falls on a Sunday, Mutoro has requested that CS Kithure take into consideration the constitutional provision that stipulates the holiday must be observed on the following day, which is Monday. In any case, it needs to be pushed up to the day after the next if the day after that is a holiday that the general public observes. As a direct consequence of this, Christmas Day will be celebrated on Wednesday, December 27, 2022, rather than the traditionally observed date of Christmas Day, which is December 25. Because December 25 falls on a Sunday this year, the following day, Monday, will also be a holiday. The following are the expert Mutoro's thoughts, which he shared on his official Twitter account.
