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 :-)
Please join me in my effort to share the beauty and uniqueness of Jamaica with the world. You can do so by sharing this insightful narrative on the social media of your choice and ask others to do the same (BELOW).
