Christmas in Jamaica with my family
by Raphae Leiba
Hello I'd like to share my Christmas with my family in Jamaica.
For the past 6 years I have been blessed to be with my family here in Sweet Jamaica. Christmas in Jamaica is so different. Other than the usual lights and decorations, there is always a very festive atmosphere that is very contagious.
You know that it's a different time of the year, so much hustle and bustle. As a grandmother it gives me great joy to be with my children and grandchildren. Although sometimes some are absent but there is always great joy - not to mention the food! Personally I prefer a good roast chicken instead of turkey.
I also prefer sweet potato pudding to pumpkin pie. My family's bread pudding (with lots of White rum and Red Label wine) is out of this world!!Oh yes!!!
Lol. Love it. Thanks for sharing Raphae!
I think I'll be reaching out to you next year to get a piece of your family's bread pudding - sounds tasty - and not because of the rum :-)
