Christmas decorations have already been put up at many private and public places all around the country. In homes, business places, certain Avenues in the city and institutions, including the Palms on Brickdam. Christmas music is also being played on the Radio Stations; my favourite is, “Happy Holidays” by the Guyanese group The Four Lords. According to one of the popular Christmas songs, “It’s the most wonderful time of the Year”, and residents of The Palms on Brickdam in Georgetown, look forward to all the wonderful things that occur at that special home for ‘seenagers’, during the Festive Season, when relatives, friends and corporate citizens, drop by with a wide variety if goodies, to bring joy, happiness and a measure of “the good life”, to those who have made sterling contributions to Guyana, during their younger and more productive years.     Continue reading

[This is a re-post of my Christmas message 2011, the year I started my blog.]

As a result of my religious school education, the Christmas Season was much more than time for family get-togethers; Santa Claus; exchanging presents; Christmas trees and decorations; and our traditional Christmas dishes and black cake. Christmas Day was the celebration of the birth of Jesus – the Savior born to us.

Christmastime with Mr Stick-Um and Bam-Bam Sally – by Francis Quamina Farrier

I’m always grateful to my Parents for my upbringing; born of a Grenadian father and a Guyanese mother. Experiencing life in the city, the rural areas, the intermediate savannahs, the mountains and also the southern savannahs of my homeland, Guyana, all before I reached my twentieth year of life.

Growing up in McDoom village, on the East Bank of Demerara, which was not a part of the city of Georgetown, in colonial British Guiana, I can share with you, some of the enjoyments of the Christmas Season activities in pre-Independent rural British Guiana.    Continue reading
