U.S. Vice President Joe Biden Celebrates New Year in St. Croix

U.S. Vice President Biden Celebrates New Years in St. Croix
Caribbean Journal

Are you staying in the Presidential Suite this weekend at your favorite all inclusive resort in St. Croix? Do you want to feel really Presidential?

You could invite the Vice President and his wife Jill to join you in a New Years Eve toast.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden flew to St. Croix this week with his family to celebrate the New Year.

Biden, who regularly visits St. Croix, will be staying on the island through January 2, 2017.

It will likely be his last visit to the U.S. Virgin Islands as a sitting Vice President, with incoming President Donald J. Trump set to be sworn in on January 20, 2017.

The visit caused traffic congestion unusual for the island after landing with his wife Dr. Jill Biden at St. Croix’s Henry E. Rohlsen Airport.

Biden, who has been active in the Caribbean region as Vice President, including chairing a major Caribbean energy summit earlier this year, also visited St. Croix last year at this time, similarly staying through January 2nd.

Imagine clinking glasses just before midnight and then saying goodnight. Rather than saying you spent a couple of minutes with the VP … you could say that you started drinking in 2016 and didn’t stop until 2017.

Happy New Year.
