Travel agents can wish clients a Merry Christmas, Saint Lucia style, using an inspirational digital Christmas card video recently released by the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA). 

The video complements the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ series, which is currently on social media highlighting the island’s long-standing cultural traditions.

Capturing viewers with warm Saint Lucians smiles, the digital card transports viewers to the island’s breathtaking beaches, irresistible sunsets and lush green topography that surrounds the Pitons.

The video features an upbeat traditional Christmas carol by one of one of Saint Lucia’s greatest cultural icons and son of the soil, the late calypsonian Jeff Elva. 

“Creating this digital Christmas card video is one way that Saint Lucia continues to keep Christmas traditions alive as we celebrate the season. We sympathize with all affected by this pandemic and we look forward to greater days ahead for visitors and our island’s people," said Minister of Tourism, the Honourable Dominic Fedee

And on social media to celebrate the season, the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ in Saint Lucia features practices that span centuries and are still widely enjoyed during the holidays.
