Jamaican Christmas, Love it!
At this time of year I usually start thinking about Christmas. I went to school in the USA, but now living in Jamaica.
I visit u.s.a. once or twice each year, but never spend Christmas there because I am scared to miss Christmas in Jamaica :-)
From October the breeze changes and get really really cool and I love it that way.
I have a six year old son and from the start on December to January first, everything we do has to have a Christmas ring to it.
We normally link up with his cousins ages, 7, 7,10 and 10 years old. We start trimming the garden and clear it really nice.
We would then go to mega mart to get fake snow to put on the leaves and to write Merry Christmas on the drive way.
Oh we start playing carol from as early as November. In December before our mega family Christmas linkup ( on 24th ), me and the kids would take centre stage.
We have to decorate the trees in the garden, order the goat, fish, chicken and conch, orange juice and the big bad sorrel drink
, rice and peas
, ice -cream, rum cake
..oh mi nuh almost fi get fi let you all no that the big bad chef "billawall", yo him bad - Him wi mek yuh eat yuh fingers!
Not finish but next time :-)Editor's Note
