Christmas time in Jamaica while I was growing up was amazing. On December 1st or sometimes even a little earlier my family and I would put up and decorate our Christmas tree. It was always such a delight to see the glowing angel figurine at the top of the tree.
One of my favorite things to do during Christmastime was baking with my mom. I loved helping her bake our delicious traditional Christmas fruitcake.
On Christmas morning my family and I would go to a lovely service at church and return home after to open our gifts. Later in the evening we would have Christmas dinner with my extended family. Everyone would gather at my house for dinner.Dinner included a wide assortment of food and drinks including curried goat, rice and peas, roasted ham, oxtail and sorrel just to name a few. After dinner we would play games and reminisce about good memories of the past. Lots of laughter could be heard throughout the house.
Christmas was definitely the most wonderful time of the year growing up. （Sevy） 🎄
