Banks Open on Holidays: It is Christmas time, when all of mankind gather to mark the biggest holiday on the calendar. In Kenya, by December 24, the streets of all major urban areas will be empty as Kenyans troop to the village to mark the Xmas festivities. Shops will close, government offices will be shut down, and banks will not operate.
