Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony said he has many special memories of Christmas, but his favourite moment this year was when the police band dropped by his home to entertain him.
Below is the PM’s full statement:
I am sure nearly everyone have special memories of Christmas. I have lots of them. This Christmas was no exception.
Before I share my special experience of this Christmas with you , I thought I should tell you how much I love this time of year. It gets dark early and that gives a nice cozy feeling. I actually try to get home early from work. Then the temperature drops. The hot humid conditions give way to nice, balmy weather. The nights are cooler as the breezes blow steadily and consistently. Its not just the weather though. People are actually nicer and more pleasant with each other as tension and animosity gives way to “a little more love.”
Now I will tell you why this Christmas was special. Some members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Band dropped by at my house just before Christmas to regale me with some Christmas songs. The music was sweet and infectious. Our Police Band is pure, pure class. I love to see the way the band members interact with each other. They are a great team. Needless to tell you, I had a great time. Thank you for making this Christmas truly special!
