Christmas is coming Yay

I will be quite honest with my readers. I sat here in front of my laptop trying to think of a topic that would be reviting and also would get people thinking. However, quite frankly, I'm tired. Sad to say but this school thing has really began taking a toll on me... But I'll manage. However I did see Melba write something that with the slowly increasing coolness in the air (christmas breeze) really inspired me and that is the simple word Christmas! In case you haven't realized, I really love christmas. Yes we dont have snow in Jamaica or do any of our houses actually have chimney's for Santa to come through, but we do have our own unique ways of celebrating the season. Sadly gone are the days of Jonkunnu to scare children during christmas time. However we still have the traditional grand market and also we have not lost out love of our traditional christmas ham and sorrel. sorrel sorrel

To be honest, food is just about what the Jamaican christmas is encircled around... Food and family. Yes we do the gift giving and the putting up of christmas lights and the christmas tree and all the other things which are associated with the western style christmas. But really christmas doesnt start for most jamaican's until christmas dinner when tables are filled to the brim with various choices of delectable meals that are sure to please the consumers. And to add to the full table of food there is also the constant laughter of the many family members gathering and reminiscing, while at the same time looking to the future. Oh... and there's rum too. All in all, I just realized that christmas is coming, and I cant wait! The time for joy, cheer, and hopefully for somebody to remember me and send me lots of gifts :) Time to start singing guys .... Joy to the world...
