On Saturday, Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. spread holiday cheer with his annual “Governor’s Children’s Christmas Party” on St. Croix. Parents and their children lined up outside Government House, anxiously waiting to go inside and receive toys, treats, and giveaways. They also had the chance to take pictures with Santa and enjoy festive holiday music.

Tables with gifts were organized by gender and age range. After the children collected their gifts, they were greeted outside with tables and tents set up with giveaways from government agencies, which meant even more Christmas goodies for the children.
