IT IS THE start of the month of November and Barbadians are getting excited over the activities being staged to celebrate their country's anniversary of Independence.

This year is more special given that Barbados will be observing its 50th as an independent nation on November 30.

Yesterday evening the official Sagicor Life Lighting ceremony was held at Heroes Square, The City before thousands of locals and visitors.

Not only did those in Bridgetown celebrate as the environs were transformed into a sea of gold and ultramarine, but far to the east at Beulah Corner, St Philip, the Beulah Methodist Church reflected its national pride with the blue and gold colours.

Instead of an announcement via the Throne Speech, should Barbadians decide via referendum whether the country becomes a republic?
