Explore Jamaica On Christmas Holiday 2016

Christmas season in Jamaica is the most awaited festive time of the year, celebrations, special treats, entertainment, parties and happy gatherings of friends and family. Jonkanoo (or John Canoe) is a traditional Christmas celebration in Jamaica. This includes street dancing and a great parade through the streets with Jamaicans dressed in colorful masquerade costumes in which masks are worn. You will get to listen the reggae version of your all time favorite Christmas carols like Oh Holy Night and Silent Night.

The Grand Market is a community fair characterized by food, street dancing, crafts, and music. The weekend before Christmas and particularly on Christmas Eve, markets all over the island are set up with vendors sell a lot of Christmas goodies.  Markets are also decorated with streamers, large accordion-style bells, and balloons. People arrive dressed up, in fancy clothes, including bright hats purchased upon entering the Grand Market. The whole town comes to Grand Market and the celebrations last throughout the day and night.

Food is an integral part of any celebration thus Jamaica has its own authentic preparations during Christmas time. Christmas day meal is usually prepared on Christmas Eve. Dining in Jamaica over the holidays is a festive experience filled with delectable delights. A traditional dinner is likely to include the following specialties:

Baked ham, roast beef, chicken, oxtail or curried goat, accompanied by a sweet yam called yampi and Gungo (pigeon) rice and peas. 

Jamaican fruitcake, made with fruits that are soaked for months in rum or port, with a final dousing at the Christmas table.

Sorrel wine, created from the red fruit of the sorrel plant fermented to a sweetened, red-colored drink spiced with ginger, cloves and pimento, and laced with white rum.

Christmas season is the best time to visit Jamaica with your family and friends. It is undoubtedly the most festive season of the year, with non-stop celebrations, special treats, entertainment, parties, festivals, and happy gatherings of friends and family. Jamaica offers visitors a great escape and the ideal winter getaway. Merry Jamaican Christmas!
