Jamaican Christmas, Love it!

(jamaica)

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 :-)

continuation- Jamaican Christmas by milton
by: Milton

On christmas eve we keep our Christmas party about 40 people. The kids likewise the adults all have fun, especially when i went in side to get the sweets bag.

I played a game called get the most sweets. I open the bag and start throwing the sweets all over and the kids when to work.

There were all over each other grabing sweets. I was laughing so hard and uncontrollable, i really had fun.

At about 10pm the party was coming to the end so i went to the kitchen and make sure everyone had their plates full going home.

OH, i forgot to let you all know that i was also the selector playing the Christmas carols, both in English and Jamaican, like Santa Claus never coming to the ghetto.

On Christmas day i took my family on the beach, in the evening to have dinner. We went to a place called chillout, which was well decorated, and they even have a santa claus.

They were playing some great western carols, like holly night, joy to the world and others. We had conch and lobster and roast fish. It was amazing really had i wonderful Christmas last year (2013).

Looking forward to better this year (2014). Peace and may everyone have fun this Christmas. banny
