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 (curry goat, 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..
"Mi Lub christmas time a mi yaad" (I love Christmas Time in Jamaica)
Seasons (Christmas) greetings to you and the family in South Carolina Shauakay!.
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!
Do you mind saying which parish you came ShaunaKay? I wonder if it was one nearby me?
