THEY might not understand the profound meaning of Christmas but they have their own unique way of celebrating the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ in style.

With Christmas carols filling the air and daily shoppers busy doing their last minute shopping in Labasa on Saturday, a group of taxidrivers dressed in kala vata (same colour) and red toupees to mark the much-awaited annual event.

Mahendra Kumar, a driver, said they decided to dress up in style for the purpose of fostering inclusiveness and togetherness among all religions worldwide. "Christmas is not only meant to be celebrated by Christians but people from all faiths because it's an event worth rejoicing for," he said.

"This is our own initiative and we will continue to celebrate it in the coming years because it also compliments our service."
