My Christmas in Jamaica -2011!

by M. Lecky

Ever since migrating over 2 decades ago I always pinned for A Jamaican Christmas. This year I finally had to opportunity although I was excited to as always to be home I also realized that "you can't go home again".

I was truly hoping it would be the Christmas of my childhood; The Johnkano, starlight, fefe baloons, etc... but that was not be be recreated. Never-the-less, it was a great Christmas...

I spent my time in Kingston with my Mother, siblings (adults), niece, nephew, a few old friends stopped by. My family and I took to the country roads for Falmoth in Trelawny to meet up with a brother whom had not been home in 10yrs.

I thoroughly enjoyed the ride through the country-side it was there passing through those town and finally our destination that I experienced the "Christmas Spirit."

People were dressed in their finest garbs walking to and from Church, some just sitting in yards playing dominoes or just hanging out, Music playing and there was the evidence of the nights festivities (sound-systems being set-up).

We arrived at our destination to the typical abudant food and drinks! Christmas night we all walked down to the community party (street dance) held in the town square.

There were activities for the kids & adults, street vendors selling Jerk Chicken, fish, soup etc.

The soup was a welcome for the cool night air. Everyone had a good night. It was a great Christmas Jamaica!
