Jamaican Family
Written by Staff Writer

If you are lucky enough to know a Jamaican family, it will be a real treat to spend Christmas with them. Generally, all traditional Jamaican foods are cooked for the Christmas celebration: ackee and saltfish for breakfast; dinner with ham, jerk chicken, roast beef and rice and peas. If you don’t know a Jamaican family, try a bed-and-breakfast like the Blue House in Ocho Rios. Many of these accommodations are run by families who will welcome you at Christmas, and many plan their menus to reflect the island traditions of the day.
