But every year, hundreds more can only reminisce on the Guyanese Christmases of their childhoods or recent pasts. Four Guyanese living in Bristol, United Kingdom; Houston, Texas and Kentucky in the US and Tortola, BVI tell Lifestyle what they miss about Christmas ‘back home’.

It has also opened up many exciting possibilities for us – and discussions are currently underway with major charitable foundations and business entities around the world that we hope to partner with in the coming months.
