#12daysofChristmas is almost over! It's day 11 and the tradition for today is tree lighting ceremonies. This one isn't a distinctly Jamaican tradition but it's still an important one. Christmas trees are lit across the island in city and town centres. There is usually a tree lighting ceremony where carols are sung. It's always a beautiful sight!

Today is day 10 of #JAMINFRANCE's #12daysofChristmas, where we are highlighting 1 Jamaican Christmas tradition per day. We'll focus on a beloved tradition, gran' market! Gran' market happens every Christmas Eve. On gran' market night, stores are open until very late and there are vendors lining the streets of Jamaican cities and towns selling everything from toys to clothes. Roads are closed to vehicular traffic to facilitate vendors. Gran' market is not only a great opportunity to get some last minute Christmas shopping done, but also a chance to socialise. Teenagers and young adults use the opportunity to hang out and ring in Christmas amongst each other. Kids also enjoy it as they can stay out extra late that night once their parents allow it.

We couldn't talk about Jamaican Christmas traditions without mentioning Jonkonnu. Today, on day 9 of #JAMINFRANCE's #12daysofChristmas, we'll focus on the iconic tradition. See the summary from the JIS (Jamaica Information Service) for more about this colourful tradition.

It's day 8 of #JAMINFRANCE'S #12daysofChristmas! The tradition we'll highlight today is all about food. Food is as essential to a Jamaican celebration as music is. During the Christmas season, goats and pigs are killed and their meat and other parts used to make various dishes. A popular one is mannish water. Mannish water is a soup made from goat head and goat belly along with things like green banana, flour dumplings (spinners) and of course ram goat noodles or another ready-made soup mix. Mannish water is popular not only during Christmas but at other Jamaican gatherings as well.

It's day 7 of #JAMINFRANCE's #12daysofChristmas! Music is a vital part of Jamaican culture and holiday celebrations are no exception! Like in most predominantly Christian countries, Christmas carols can be heard on the radio and at events during November and December. And like with most things, Jamaicans like to add their own special touch to the Christmas song tradition. There are Jamaican Christmas songs such as Santa Ketch Up Inna Mango Tree by Faith D'Aguilar and Santa Claus (Do You Ever Come to the Ghetto?) by Carlene Davis, just to name a few. The topics vary and include subjects like celebrating Christmas in a tropical climate, social commentary, love for the season, and the Nativity. It's not uncommon to find Jamaican Christmas songs with a reggae beat.

If you're familiar with this tradition, what's your favourite Jamaican Christmas song?

It's day 5 #JAMINFRANCE'S #12DaysOfChristmas and we'll focus on "gungo". Gungo is a type of pea that is on season during December. Jamaicans use it in popular dishes like gungo rice and peas, and gungo soup. The only difference between gungo rice and peas and standard Jamaican rice and peas is the type of pea used. Like traditional Jamaican rice and peas, gungo rice and peas goes well with meats like chicken, ham, pork, and beef.

Gungo soup is a soup made with gungo peas, corn pork or beef, coconut milk, pepper dumplings, cocoa, breadfruit, yam etc. It's the perfect meal to have when the "Christmas breeze" is blowing 😉

19/12/2020

Today is day 4 of #JAMINFRANCE'S #12DaysOfChristmas and we'll focus on a Christmas tradition that's popular at Jamaican shops: selling balloons to kids. Shop owners purchase a pack of balloons of varying sizes and kids pick a number. That number determines which balloon they receive. The pack comes with a very big balloon that all the kids would love to win but it's all about luck. It's rare that you win the grand prize (the biggest balloon in the pack). Jamaicans who used to participate as children, have you ever won the biggest balloon in the pack?

So so proud of our vice-president, Rhody-Ann Thorpe! Continue doing big things!

Wow, just wow.

Thanking God for his never ending blessings.

Never thought that I would be ending 2020 as a recipient of the Prime Minister’s National Youth Awards for Excellence in Leadership.

[For my non-Jamaican friends, this is the highest award that a young person in Jamaica can receive].

Thank you again Most Honourable Prime Minister Andrew Holness for this recognition; especially as Jamaican in the French Diaspora.

I'd also like to express special appreciation to Mr. Jean-Pierre Murray, Ms. Yentyl Williams and Mrs. Barnett-Passard for their endorsements ; and to my family, friends and colleagues for their love and support.

I'm also grateful to all the entities and individuals I've worked with throughout the years, which helped to mold me into the person I am today; and I'd like to specially acknowledge my colleagues from some of the organizations that I currently represent:

ACP YPN: African Caribbean Pacific Young Professionals Network

JAMINFRANCE- Association of Jamaican Nationals in France

Youth Policy Advocacy Leaders TaskForce

Collège des doctorants de la SAES

Languesol International

100.000 entrepreneurs

To all, keep doing what you're doing to make this world a better place. Do it from your heart. Let Matthew 6:4 be your guide, as it is mine.

Love,
Rho 😘

17/12/2020

Today is Day 3 of #JAMINFRANCE's #12DaysOfChristmas and the tradition we'll focus on is Christmas class parties and office parties. These events are either cancelled or being held virtually this year due to COVID-19. However, they are usually held in person in December.

Some office parties are held at hotels while class parties are held at school in the classroom. The office party dress code is usually semi-formal and it's a great opportunity to bond with colleagues while eating, drinking and being merry. No Jamaican party is complete without music and so there is normally a DJ playing at the event.

Children wear their uniforms or jeans and a suitable top to class parties as it's held on the last day of school. Some schools ask parents to bring an item for the party. Food items such as KFC chicken, cake, pizza, and cocktail patties are staples at class parties. Some schools ask parents to make a monetary contribution which the teacher uses to buy all the food and drinks. Children may also bring games to play during the party. And there is, of course, music.

As mentioned yesterday, gift exchanges are done at both office and class parties. These Christmas events are always a great way to end the year in style!

We don't have a winter season in Jamaica. We have a Christmas season instead 😉. To celebrate this Christmas season, #JAMINFRANCE will be sharing 12 Jamaican Christmas traditions on the 12 days leading up to Christmas.

Today is day 2 of #JAMINFRANCE's 12 Days of Christmas and the 2nd tradition we'll focus on is the "cheery" tradition!

Christmas is all about giving! And Christmas in Jamaican work places and schools is no exception. Starting in late November or early December, coworkers/students randomly pick the name of the person that they will "cheer". Small gifts are given by the cheery a few times a week. The cheery is careful not to reveal their identity and may ask others to assist them in delivering gifts so as to not raise suspicions. Some schools and work places ask that everyone state what they'd like as their final gift while other places leave the cheery to decide on a final gift. There is usually a maximum amount that can be spent on the final gift. The final gift is usually given at the Christmas party, which is where the cheery will also reveal their identity. It's something coworkers and classmates look forward to every year.

We don't have a winter season in Jamaica. We have a Christmas season instead 😉. To celebrate this Christmas season, #JAMINFRANCE will be sharing 12 Jamaican Christmas traditions on the 12 days leading up to Christmas.

Today is day 1 of #JAMINFRANCE's 12 Days of Christmas and the first tradition we'll focus on is food-related of course! 😋

Fruit cake and sorrel are staples in Jamaican homes and establishments during the Christmas season. Fruit cake is serious business! The fruits used (which include raisins and prunes) are usually soaked in wine for a week or even for months before the cake is to be baked. The cake can be eaten by children even though it contains alcohol and most Jamaicans would have grown up eating fruit cake. (It will not get your kids drunk.)

After eating fruit cake, you'll need something to quench your thirst. That's where sorrel comes in. Sorrel is a drink made from a hibiscus plant of the same name. The plant is boiled along with ginger and then left to soak for a while. It's then strained and sweetened with sugar. People usually add rum and/or wine to their sorrel. It's served chilled. Wherever you are in the world this holiday season, we hope you get to have a little fruit cake and sorrel, Jamaican style! 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲

🗣️ Exciting news!!! 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲

Jamaican artiste Koffee is featured in Billboard magazine's 21 Under 21 list. This list features 21 artistes under 21 who have done big things in 2020. The 20 year old Jamaican native has racked up more than 189 million streams and collaborated with big names such as John Legend and Buju Banton.

She also made history earlier this year when she became the first woman artiste to win the grammy for best reggae album. She was also the youngest winner of the award in its 35 year history.

Koffee says she plans “to set an example for those who are younger than me — to inspire others to reach their full potential.”

Big up Koffee! Yuh big like house!

Congratulations to @cedellamarley, who, today, receives the Order of Distinction in the rank of Commander (CD) at the annual National Honours and Awards Ceremony. It's well-deserved after her work with Jamaica's national women's football programme. With support from Cedella Marley, the Reggae Girlz qualified for the FIFA Women's World Cup for the first time last year. Jamaicans in France came out in our numbers to watch the historic matches. We are so proud of Cedella Marley and the Reggae Girlz! 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲

19/10/2020

Today is National Heroes' Day in Jamaica and we want to highlight 1 of our 7 national heroes, Nanny of the Maroons. Nanny was born in Ghana and brought to Jamaica during the Transatlantic slave trade. She escaped enslavement and went to live in the mountains with other Maroons. She was a proud member of the Ashanti tribe and encouraged the Maroons to continue African rituals and traditions. This continuation of customs helped instill confidence and pride in the Maroons.

Nanny was an important leader during the First Maroon War (1720 - 1739) against the British. She was renowned for her guerilla warfare tactics, which confused the British and kept them away from Maroon territory in the mountains.

Nanny became Jamaica's first and only national heroine posthumously in 1982 due to her tremendous contribution to the fight against enslavement on the island. So, on this National Heroes' Day, we say thank you to the Ghanaian warrior Nanny, and all those who fought alongside her in an effort to win our freedom.

Bonjour à tous ! Je suis l'auteur d'un roman qui est sorti le jour de l'anniversaire de Bob, le 6 février dernier et est tombé dans l'oubli avec ce confinement... il devrait vous intéresser. Alors je reviens vers vous pour vous en parler. Il s'agit de Resurrection song (chez Buchet Chastel). Le roman du retour de Bob Marley, le nouveau messie! Vous trouverez des infos sur le site de l'éditeur (vous pouvez lire les premières pages en cliquant sur le petit livre en bas à gauche de la couverture): http://www.buchetchastel.fr/resurrection-song-teodoro-gilabert-9782283033159 Je vous enverrai aussi des critiques et le Journal de confinement de Bob (il est avec sa copine dans un appartement à Marseille) qui est publié dans ma page FaceBook. https://www.facebook.com/teodoro.gilabert Le livre est disponible partout sur internet (Fnac) et dans les librairies qui commencent à ouvrir.
