Politicians have been exchanging their political hats for Santa hats during December as they treat constituents to Christmas treats and Christmas cheer.
St Michael North MP Ronald Toppin held his biggest-ever Christmas party for constituents at the Soroptimists Senior Citizens Village in Eden Lodge on Sunday.
“We have 500 people here. It’s the biggest ever. At one stage we ran out of chairs,” said a jolly Toppin as he served up traditional Bajan Christmas fare.

St James Central MP and Minister of International Transport, George Hutson, also sported a Santa hat for his constituency Christmas party at a private residence on the West Coast. In fact, Hutson went all out and donned a full Santa suit as he presented gifts to nearly 400 children from his constituency last Saturday. The only thing that was missing were the reindeer and sleigh as he doled out gifts from his sack.
Is it Santa? No, but close enough - it is St. James Central MP George Hutson playing the role quite well at his annual constituency Christmas party.
“I have been hosting this party and playing Santa Claus for a number of years and the kids look forward to our party. We do it for the children and keep them happy,” he said.
