CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2020

SHINING THE LIGHT OF BVILOVE FOR A BRIGHTER AND HAPPIER HOLIDAY SEASON

At this festive time of the year when many of our notable traditions come to life: the making of local goodies such as tarts, sweet breads, potato pudding, guava berry liqueur and many others to celebrate and share with family and friends; warm Christmas feelings punctuates many homes, business places, shops and houses of worship.

Some locations give us the opportunity to reflect on the rich history made by our fore parents who in their wisdom and using the limited resources experienced joyous times.

Like us today, our fore parents experienced a similar pandemic in the years around 1918, and sadly lives were lost, but we are eternally grateful for the great God of the Universe who has certainly kept us through this year 2020 as we have come face-to-face with the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is with these sentiments that my family and I pause to wish all residents at home and abroad, and especially my friends of District 5, a very special and joyous Christmas tide and a spirit-filled and healthy New Year.

May this Christmas end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright new year, as we live, love and work together.

Here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
