Christmas of yesteryear underway at Miss Lassie’s House

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Miss Lassie’s house, a Christmas of yesteryear.
The Cayman National Cultural Foundation is keeping the old ways alive, as volunteers go through the traditional Christmas preparations.
This year, Miss Lassie’s wattle and daub home was spared a new coat of lime, but rosemary brooms were in action to help spruce up the sand to postcard perfection, just like back in the day.
“It’s kind of like the feeling of snow, you know, getting that pristine white snow with the sun glinting off of it, and counterpointed with the green, sharp lovely tones of green, and the pinks shells… And it was just beautiful for Christmas,” said CNCF Artistic Director Henry Muttoo of the tradition of “White Christmas” in Cayman.
Volunteers also helped spruce up around the house, bringing that Christmas-time feeling to south sound.
