Old GT Xmas

No one wanted the season to come and go without marking some meaningful change in their life, however small that change might be.  They didn’t want the season to come and go, leaving them as it had found them.  And this frame of mind was reflected in the sense of expectancy as Christmas approached that year and carols from Radio Demerara filled the air.

    Ron Cheong brought back memories of Christmas past. He reminded us older Guyanese folks of those items that were special and customs and rituals that were uniquely associted only to a Guyanese Christmas. A beautiful piece and well written.
