No white christmas in Barbados....if yah please!

Christmas is my my favourite time of the year it is true and I like it in Barbados, even though it is not like it used to be.Bridgetown is beginning to swell with people. I am tempted to say like a mindless mass of people.....I probably will be doing my shopping on christmas eve...just before the stores close....It still amazes me how one culture can be so much influenced by another...the proliferation of white christmas songs.....prompted my little girl to ask me if it ever snowed or ever will snow in Barbados...as i told her...i don't like a white christmas and thats because of the cold.If snow was white fluffy and warm then yes...maybe.

Now I explained to the customer care rep on the phone that I did all of this already(except asking for the senior person) and it didn't work.I queried as to if it would be possible for she to give me the information so that I can configure
