Its Christmas time again and there is nothing like a Jamaican Christmas. The holidays are the most festive time of the year, filled with non-stop celebrations, special treats like Jamican Christmas cake, entertainment, parties, festivals and happy gatherings of friends and family.
Although Jamaica has never seen snow, and their houses are designed without chimneys, Santa Claus and gift giving are a part of Jamaica’s traditions. Christmas dinner is the biggest feast for Jamaicans on Christmas Day. It is also a traditional Christmas celebration called “Junkanoo,” to have parades through the streets occurring during the dark hours of the morning on the 26thof December and again bringing in its first hours of light on the first day of the New Year. Junkanoo started as a temporary celebration of freedom for slaves who were given three days off at Christmas time.
Holidays are always more fun with good people and good food.
From all of us here at Great Shape! Inc. we hope you have a merry Christmas!
