Market vendors shared the joy of Christmas by exchanging gifts at the Labasa Market on Thursday.

Amelia Disovo, 40, was happy to be part of the celebrations.

“Christmas is some­thing we really look for­ward to each year and exchanging gifts is some­thing that is very much part of it,” she said.

Ms Disovo, who ex­changed gifts with Silvia Ragio, 32, said most of their days had been spent at the Labasa market.

“So we are all like a fam­ily here we share most of our time here on a daily basis,” she said.

“Coming together and appreciating each other’s hard work is a special oc­casion for everyone.”

Ms Ragio was excited and could not wait to get home to open her gift pack.

“I will open it as soon as I reach home and I’m re­ally excited about it,” she said.

While officiating during the celebrations, Labasa Market manager Sha­lendra Chand said that it was important to recog­nise the efforts shown by market vendors.

“Most of their days are spent here so everyone is like a big family,” he said.

“Christmas is all about sharing love and positiv­ity.”

Kaliova Draunimasi of the Labasa Market Police Post thanked all market vendors for their contin­uous support and devel­opment of the region.

“Today’s event shows that there is a strong bond and friendship among all market ven­dors,” he said.

“I would also like to en­courage people to help the less fortunate mem­bers of society festive season.”
