Hundreds lined the streets of Charlestown dressed-to-impress on Saturday night to commemorate the Christmas holiday.  

The shops and boutiques of Charlestown remained open until the wee hours of the morning on Christmas to accommodate late Christmas shoppers as many did their last-minute shopping for friends and family. 

One patron explained that traveling to Charlestown on Christmas Eve was a long-standing tradition in Nevis. 

“It’s years now that we know you go to town on Christmas Eve to do your little last-minute shopping and so.  There are always a lot of festivities and we always have a good time eating barbecue and watching the fireworks,” they said. 

“However, we all know that Christmas is more than food and fireworks.  It is a time when people come together to celebrate the birth of the Christ and I just hope that this Christmas we can all put aside the hatred and violence and just remember that the true meaning of Christmas is Christ.”

    Enjoyed the tid-bits about the Island of Nevis. After 20 visits to Nevis, I have seen many great Christmas days. If you desire to see more of Nevis, please have a shufty of my Nevis website.
