Christmas In Jamaica - My Memories
by Sonia Evans-Rose
Re: What's Your Dream Jamaican Christmas feedback question
I left Jamaica many years ago so it's more a case of what I remember of Christmas in Jamaica.
Whenever I think of Christmas in Jamaica my first thoughts are always of my grandmother.
She may have been getting on in age but that didn't stop her. She would prepare for Christmas way in advance.
On Grand-Market morning she would get me and my sister ready nice and early and the three of us would head off to the town for our area to do a massive shopping.
We would get all the things children wished for throughout the year but could only get at Christmas time.
My grand-mother also got lots of new things for the house. Sometimes things were tough but at Christmas my sister and I felt we were the richest in the world.
Thinking about it now it's like I'm there in the middle of it all. The excitement of shoppers and market traders...the noise, the smell, the hustle and bustle, the food, music blaring out.
Not forgetting the Jonconnu dance- man....I want up go Jamaica now.
