Vincentians are having mixed feelings about the Christmas season.

While many are enjoying the season and looking forward to much needed time with friends and family, others are not as enthused.{{more}}

Lesroy Noel of Union Island told Searchlight he was not feeling the Christmas spirit.

Noel, who was shopping for his newly built house, said that he was taking advantage of the deals.

“I’m not a person who is into wholesale shopping. I don’t believe in spending money just for spending sake,” he said.

Nickisha Hazell shared similar sentiments, saying that for her, the Christmas season was boring.

She, however, stated that she was looking forward to spending time with her family.

An individual who wishes to remain anonymous described the season as tiring because of how busy the town has been and her inability to find suitable Christmas presents.

She further listed several things that she enjoyed about the Christmas season, which included sorrel, freshly baked bread, turkey and black cake.

Other people highlighted that for them, Christmas was all about the birth of Jesus Christ.

O.G. Thomas, a vendor, said Christmas will be good for him because “It’s the day that Christ was born, so, at least I’m celebrating it”.

“Christmas means a lot to me because Christ was born on Christmas day,” said Feane Thomas, a person shopping at COURTS.

One street vendor told SEARCHLIGHT that Christmas is everyday for him.

“Everybody [is] wait[ing] on this one day, and when the one day gone, it’s back to normal,” he remarked.
