Christmas in St. James

Christmas is a season where many people in the Caribbean do their general cleaning. Homes are freshly painted and people like in Trinidad and Tobago get into the mad rush of last minute shopping or stocking up with grog.

And with grog in mind, this bar located in St.James, Trinidad, West Indies is celebrating Christmas by placing a large tree at the front of the property. The owner says its best to come back at night to see it all lit up with lights, but at daylight it has an aesthetic of its own. Constructed from the branches of a coconut tree, the cone shape reaches over twenty feet high.

The wonderful part of Trinidad and Tobago is that its people of all religious backgrounds celebrate the Christian holiday. The owner of this particular bar may be Hindu or Muslin or even Christian himself, yet it is in its recognition thats speaks a truth of brotherhood and union.
