Celebrations in Jamaica

by Kathy
(CA, United States)

QUESTION: I am invited to a birthday Luncheon and Lime. What is the Lime? Is this a special Jamaican celebration?

ANSWER: by Wellesley November 20, 2012


Lol! Sounds too funny Kathy :-), but thanks for the question.

I think the "Lime" you mentioned (or should I say they invited you to) is actually Lyme- a colloquial Jamaican phrase or term we use that speaks to the act of socializing in a relaxing, down-to-earth, friendly atmosphere.


Don't ask me where we get that from? Lol.
Yes, you'll typically it mostly when people are referring to social engagements or parties.

I am assuming that your invitation is in the states right? Either way, go ahead and "Lyme" with the folks.

If you were invited then obviously you must be regarding as a friend and someone somebody is looking or willing to 'chill out' with :-)

Enjoy.
