(TORONTO, ON – December 21st, 2020) – The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) has released an inspirational digital Christmas card video to celebrate the holiday season. 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”.
Minister of Tourism – Honourable Dominic Fedee
