Bitter Sweet Christmas In Jamaica
by Shaunakay Davis
(Charleston, South Carolina)
It was a bitter sweet moment for me because it was a couple years that my aunt and I have not been home in christmas time.
But last Christmas I had to go home to celebrate the homegoing service of my grandmother.
I will never forget the family get-together and the FOOD
, manish water, and the list goes on).
We have a family home so we stayed there, the homegoing service was so good.
I saw people I never knew was still around since my childhood!
I must admit that it was a bitter-sweet Christmas but it is always on my lips to say..

Thanks for the feedback, very nice! And by the way, it sounds like it was more sweet that bitter :-)
I understand that it never the ideal time to be celebrating Christmas in Jamaica with the passing of a loved one, but it sounds like it was memorable - you reconnected, your fellowship and had great food!
