Christmas Traditions in Trinidad
The Christmas holidays are a special time when islanders not only celebrate the birth of Jesus but take time reminisce on the past year. To prepare for the holiday you will find homeowners sprucing up their homes to make them look new for the end of the year. It is common to see houses being painted, new furniture being delivered and lawns and hedges being trimmed. New curtains and drapery are a focal point of Christmas decorations. Beautiful, shiny fabric is purchased and new curtains are made to adorn the windows of homes. The finishing touch is the decorated tree.
Family Time at Christmas
For many, the most important part of Christmas is the time spent with family and friends. As people look back on the year and prepare for the upcoming year, they like to do so with those closest to them. Food and drink is an important part of these celebrations. Planning a dinner at this time of year for large groups can be easily done at a hotel or banquet facility. This gives participants the chance to enjoy the time with their loved ones without having to worry about preparations, serving or clean-up.
