We gone lime all day wit we friends. Once yuh belly ready to burst yuh could sit back and enjoy a bit of parang and Christmas Calypso wit we.
This is the award winning parang group from the high school where our friends' daughters attend. A traditional parang group goes from house to house like a group of carolers only instead of at night they begin before dawn singing to announce the birth of Christ.
After a parang band has sung its announcement the members hope for certain treats from those they've sung to.
Rum is self-explanatory. Ponche a creme is more or less arum spiked eggnog sort of drink.
We allagree this is our favorite silly Trini Christmas calypso. We will bring out de ham today....along with plenty of traditional American dishes.
Merry Christmas, all yuh!
