50 years ago: Christmas breeze a welcome arrival

In the Dec. 7, 1966 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a precursor of the Cayman Compass, Bodden Town correspondent Haig Bodden wrote:

“The number of arrivals for the holiday season continues to increase. Miss Gloria Carter and Mr. Robert Lee Berry came in last Saturday.

“Persons arriving by Thursday’s flight were Mr. Keith Jackson, his wife Marjorie and their two children. Marjorie’s sister Mrs. Florence Watler also came by the same flight.

“The traditional Christmas breeze or old fashioned nor-easter is blowing this week.

“This is a welcome wind as it marks not only the end of the hurricane season but it also heralds the approach of Santa Claus.

“It provides the right temperature for cuddling up at nights.

“It is reported that Mr. Clifton Hunter who was ill has improved.

“The church choirs are busy practicing their carols for Christmas. Plans are under way for the garden party on New Year’s Day.”
