‘Tis The Season: IJGB SZN is Here
Seasons have changed, the end of the year is here and in some parts of the world that means—winter is here as well (read that in whatever Game of Thrones character’s voice that you prefer). With the change in weather, it not only signals upcoming holidays, but brings about a turnup season that has very little to do with weather. December for many West Africans, is the onset of IJGB SZN. IJGB Season, shorthand for “I Just Got Back,” are Africans, scattered throughout the diaspora who during the December – January period, abandon the cold weather of their adopted homes in search of the warmth of “back home.” Like vacationers everywhere else, travelers are in search of a good time and promoters are there to oblige, so we decided to help sift through the countless events and find some exciting shows to look out for if you’re in the area.
