Friday, November 16 saw the 29th anniversary of the Festival of Carols, an annual event put on by the Lions Club of Port of Spain Central with the Ministry of Education.

The idea of celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, where the emphasis is placed on the traditional Christmas carols needs to be preserved in a special way, as we are in many ways forgetting the ‘Reason for the Season’.

In the midst of being caught up with the commercial aspect of the season, where our children focus on what they are going to get, rather than what they can give, it is wonderful to experience the voices of our primary school children lifted in song, as they call to mind melodies that remind us that this is the time of the year to remember the birth of the Christ Child.
