Yuletide TraditionsOctober 10 2011
One of the unique traditions of the yuletide season in Barbados is a visit to Queen's Park on Christmas morning.
After the spiritual nourishment of the 5:00 am church services across the island, many from the various congregations wend their way to the park, primarily to listen to the carols rendered by the band of the Royal Barbados Police Force but also to meet, greet and share the joy of the season.
A feature of this gathering is the fashion statement made across ages and genders and the spectacle of colour, texture, and shape.
Attention to detail is a hallmark of the individuals who proudly parade parkside. It is also a call to action for the camera.
