[Updated with photos] As has been the tradition for many years, the Gombeys are out making their rounds on Boxing Day today [Dec 26], helping the island celebrate the holiday season.

      Yes and much more! Things like flying kites on Good Friday, fish cakes, shark hash, being warm and hospitable to visitors etc etc. I am very proud to be Bermudian not just on Boxing day but always.
