Aaron Humes: The government says you can “drink rum on Christmas morning”. Under standard operating rules under the Liquor Licensing Act for Intoxication, you can drink any liquor anytime this weekend.
Overruling the decision of the Police Department and Chief of Police Chester Williams, the Press Office statement read, “The Cabinet is requesting that all licensed establishments remain open until the following business hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I have decided to allow it,” he said. Midnight he is 12 o’clock. Nightclub, 2am. Shop and beer license, 9pm. Publican Special, midnight. Publican General, 10pm. Convenience store, midnight. Hotel, midnight. Members Club, 3:00 am.And malt and cider, 11pm

The commissioner also reiterated that the less alcohol served, the less crime and traffic accidents occurred.Police can’t celebrate [their] Christmas family, enjoy the privileges you have. Many of the police wish they had the chance to stay home with their families but are unable to do so. You have it – stay home and enjoy your family. If you’re sober or want to drink, buy some liquor on the 24th, take it home, and do it on Christmas Day. [you can] Drink all day at home. Nothing to worry about. ”
