That's all from BBC Africa Live for 2018. We hope you enjoy the festive break. You can keep up-to-date with what's happening across the continent by listening to the Africa Today podcast or checking the BBC News website.
A reminder of Friday's wise words:
Quote Message: Once a child eats what he has stayed awake for, he falls asleep." from An Igbo proverb sent by Henry Osita Chukwu in Lagos, Nigeria.
And we leave you this photo of an underwater Father Christmas in Durban, South Africa. It's one of our favourite photos of the past week.
