Oh Christmas that time of the year when the air is a bit cold as Jack Frost’s is hunting down our far away Winter neighbours. In Trinidad,while we may be lucky to have our bake and shark at Maracas and eat it too this season is just as tumultuous! A Trini Christmas experience has similar gaiety and angst as we frolic around the house cleaning, decorating, cooking and the fashionistas begin stalking the shops to discover great finds to give the gift of fashion to someone or themselves!!!!!!! Does this sound familiar? You better get the girlfriends together and read this!
