Hundreds of Barbadians ditched the tradition of cooking up a storm at home and headed to leading locations today for Christmas lunch.
One popular venue, the Hilton Barbados Resort was packed to capacity when Barbados TODAY visited at lunchtime. Management also revealed that there are healthy bookings for dinner.
“Hilton Barbados Resort will always remain that place that people will want to do their Christmas lunch so we have had great numbers for lunch and expect to have a few residents for dinner,” said Food and Beverage Manager Ramon Watson.
He was optimistic that the positive response for the holidays would continue this winter season.
Meanwhile over at Pebbles Beach, Democratic Labour Party (DLP) candidate for The City of Bridgetown Henderson Williams was busy treating approximately 250 of his constituents to a special Christmas lunch. The luncheon specifically catered to the elderly.
“Our task and focus right now is to be true to our community, true to our environment and to make sure that people who participate in occupying it are happy,” Williams told Barbados TODAY.
Williams was also accompanied by former parliamentarian Hamilton Lashley who assisted in planning the event.
Lashley said that Christmas was all about reaching out to others.
“The whole aspect of caring and sharing and coming together with the constituents of The City is what Jesus Christ epitomizes … this is the time of giving,” he stressed.
