Almost everyone puts on their finest, finest Sunday best and heads for church on Christmas morning. After the service it’s off to Queen’s Park for the most sophisticated of fashion promenades. The police band and gospel choir add music to the excitement. It’s an event not to be missed.
Locals queue up to get their Christmas cakes and almost every home is baking a ham to enjoy with friends and family. Homes are decorated with lights, the bright red Christmas flower Poinsettia grows wild in many a garden and you may be lucky enough to see Santa arrive at the beach on his jet ski!
Boxing Day heralds a race meet with a difference. This island is passionate about its horse racing and at Garrison Savannah the infectious energy of the crowd makes a great day out.

Sunshine is almost guaranteed so you can spend your Christmas Holiday relaxing on the beach with your favourite book and some ice cold drinks.
