Christmas is a very special time in Jamaica and like a lot of other countries, radio stations play carol's all through the Christmas period. Jamaican red wine and rum fruitcake is traditional and is eaten in most homes. The fruits in the cake are soaked in red wine and white rum for months before Christmas. (I have some friends who come from Jamaica and Jamaican Christmas Cake is really nice!) Some people paint their house and bye new curtians and christmas decoratins.
