The first Sunday in December (Dec 04) is recognised as “Cayman Thanksgiving” for surviving the close-calls of the hurricane season.
Today and on Saturday ( Dec 03) Locals from all districts came out to the Farmers Market by the cricket pitch in George Town for a culinary expose and to set their sights on crafts and all things Caymanian.
Youth Coordinator James Myles said after 6-months of holding our breaths with the hopes of no hurricane activity, gratitude is something we should always have time for.
“We should be giving thanks everyday we shouldn’t wait for a special occasion to give thanks to God because that’s why we were created to praise and give God thanks but especially being spared through hurricanes and we know the devastation hurricanes cause it gives us all the more reasons to give thanks,” Mr. Myles said.
There was a culinary demonstration of cassava cakes and other Caymanian Cuisine on display to show visitors to the market how to create their own dishes for last night’s (Dec 04) Thanksgiving dinner.
