Ten Days left for Christmas

There are only ten days left for Christmas and the season is in full swing here in Jamaica. At the end of last week most schools had their Christmas concerts and class parties. This week most schools have closed for the Christmas holidays, so the children are at home all excited and anxious for the actual day. Going to work morning traffic is a breeze. This is great as most of us are still blurry eyed from the many socials, customer service appreciations and office parties each night. Going home however is a nightmare with every one heading for the plazas after work .
Yes it’s definitely Christmas. The lights are out in all there glory, the Christmas carols are non-stop on the radio stations, the sorrel drink is flowing, gungo soup and gungo rice and peas is on every menu with rich Christmas cakes and puddings for desert. Most Jamaicans have over stocked on groceries for the next two weeks in anticipation of the many visitors expected during the season.

Follow up:

Unfortunately in this season of abundance there are many persons young and old who have nothing to look forward to. Some of them might even have brought their situations on themselves while some had no choice. Christmas however is the season for giving. How about sharing with someone less fortunate than yourself this Christmas. You don’t have to be rich to give. There is a saying, ‘One mans garbage is another mans treasure’, not that you would give garbage. Your time is also very priceless. You could visit an old people’s home, an hospital or an orphanage. You could even find persons within your very communities who would be blessed by your gifts of love.
Some will argue that it is hypocritical to do these things only at Christmas time, what about the rest of the year. I will not dispute that, but I do believe that we are bless for any act of kindness and if it takes Christmas to get us going then why not. Some might even be inspired to make a habit of sharing.
What ever you do, remember you have only ten days left to make a difference.
Nuff Love

The Small Sandal Shop

A married couple was on holiday in Jamaica. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods when they passed this small sandal shop.

From inside they heard the shopkeeper with a Jamaican accent say, "You!

Foreigners! Come in, come into my humble shop."

So the married couple walked in.

The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. They make you wild at sex."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Jamaican replied, "Just try them on."

Well, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years!

In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him

violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants,and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips.

The Jamaican then began screaming; "YOU GOT THEM ON THE WRONG FEET!!!"
