The Bahamas celebrate a christmas called Junkanno on December 26th and January 1st. They also have a huge parade with hundreds of people dancing, music and really cool costumes. Participants are put into a group with up to 1000 people. Who come up with their own theme and decorations competing for prizes such as money. The costumes are an absolute secret and the groups usually spend a year getting the supplies. They celebrate Junkanno because Caribbean slaves were given several days off to spend Christmas with their families.
