[www.inewsguyana.com] – There is nothing quite like celebrating Christmas in Guyana and incoming passengers at the country’s major ports of entry, including the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Moleson Creek and at Ogle International Airport were given a taste of traditional black cake to mark the festive season.
Over the last few days several teams from the Guyana Tourism Authority fanned out across the country to welcome visitors in true Guyanese fashion and to spread Christmas cheer.
More than 200 passengers arriving on the Canawaima Ferry from Suriname, on Sunday afternoon, were surprised to find special treats waiting in Guyana; though surprised many expressed the hope that the activity will continue throughout the year.
The feeling of excitement also lingered in the air at CJIA on Monday morning, as some 300 passengers were also given black cake, compliments of the Ministry of Tourism and the Guyana Tourism Authority; CJIA’s Santa and his personal one-man band kept the festive momentum going with their unique brand of Christmas spirit.
The visitors arriving through the Ogle International Airport Monday afternoon were not exempt from this annual activity, and close to 100 men, women and children were treated; this is the first time that the ‘Christmas Welcome’ was staged at Moleson Creek and the Ogle Airport.
With only three days to go before Christmas, all visitors were welcomed to the destination and invited to discover the gem that is, Guyana, South America, Undiscovered and to experience Christmas, Guyanese style. [Ministry of Tourism]
