Searching for Christ in Vincy Christmas

Kingstown, St Vincent

Kingstown, St Vincent

In another few hours, December 25, 2011 will be upon us. It will be Christmas day. This is what all the hustle and bustle is about; this is what all the preparations are all about. And, what a preparation it has been!

In the face of “hard economic times”, we Vincies have shown no signs of letting up. We are celebrating Christmas in ways that only Vincies can.

Apart from acknowledging the advent of the Saviour, a typical Vincy Christmas is marked by
1. Excessive eating;
2. Excessive drinking;
3. All night parties;
4. Drunkenness; and
5. Sexual promiscuity
Even as we do so, people continue to cry out that times are hard. But, is it?

The hectic pace of shopping never slowed down. The streets of Kingstown have been crowded day after day with shoppers and revellers. Money is some how flourishing. Even the prime minister could afford to use tax payers’ money for an extended official trip abroad that would take him to Bethlehem among other cities.

In all of this, where is the reason for the celebration? Where is Christ? Perhaps he is in Bethlehem. Unfortunately though, only the Prime Minister can travel there to find him.

Merry Christmas to all!
