However, it is always something to celebrate, being able to share your birthday with some pretty important historical figures.
Limpopo province reported at least 55 Christmas births since Friday midnight, the Health MEC Phophi Ramathuba was excited about the births.
She said that the province was blessed with so many Christmas boys, with 20 them being boys and the rest being girls according to SABC..
Ramathuba revealed that the fist Christmas birth took place at Kgapane hospital to a 35-year-old mother.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Deputy President David Mabuza has shared his festive message for South Africans on Christmas Day.
While President Cyril Ramaphosa was unusually quiet on the holiday, Mabuza shared his hope for the new year:
"The end of the year is a special time for everyone. It marks the pinnacle of individual and collective journeys we have traversed in the course of the year. It is a time to reflect on where we are, as we prepare for the beginning of a new year, which marks a new season in our lives."
In other news, The Kiffness has released another parody clip and it's just in time for Christmas. The young man, who is becoming increasingly popular in SA for his hilarious and sometimes brash parody clips put a pen to paper and sang out loud what a lot of people were thinking.
In his latest clip, Kiffness pays tribute to Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas," but this time he remixes the famous lyrics to add what most people in the world really want for Christmas, and that is to stay safe from the deadly Covid-19.
"I don't want a lot for Christmas, give me just one guarantee, I don't care about your presents, just don't give me Covid-19," Kifness starts in the hilarious yet somehow sad Covid Christmas parody song.
