‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the streets people peddled their wares, while children enjoyed their treats *snap, snap, snap*. Growing up in Jamaica one of the things I looked forward to the most at Christmastime was our Grand Market. Gran’ Market is held annually on Christmas Eve and is a huge event that takes place in towns and cities across the island. It is generally an all-day event that involves food, music and shopping. Christmas is right around the corner and since we are so close to the big day I wanted to share my memories of Gran’ market.
