“C” is for Christmas, Chanderpaul, Corruption…
I noticed that I used the same theme and style, as in today’s lead caption, a few years ago. And again, today’s treatment is (lazily) intentional. Like the letter “F”, “C” is an important first letter in the Guyanese alphabet. (Check and you’ll find that letters such as “Q”, “V” or Z don’t start as many English words as “F” and “C”. Today, let’s explore words beginning with “C”. In a Guyana “Yuletide” season.
Naturally, we begin with “C” for Christmas. Strange, that in our secular democracy with so many permissible faiths and “religions”, we have no problem with saying, selling and celebrating the actual Christmas festival. Believe it or not, even in the mighty American democracy debates, even advisories, instruct that the actual word “Christmas” be dropped! Some citizens and media say “Happy Holidays” instead.
