Zimbabwe joined large parts of the Christian world yesterday in celebrating Christmas Day, with most citizens spending the much-awaited day with relatives and friends, aware that their safety was guaranteed.

Such people include firefighters, police, soldiers, Air Force personnel, doctors especially emergency responders, nurses especially the delivery room men and women, bus drivers, customs and immigration officers, and journalists, among others.
