This Christmas

This Christmas

Everything nice….

No, Curfew, no limitations on gatherings, No restrictions. We are all advised by the Government officials to just be responsible and make wise judgments. So how are you spending your Christmas season this year?
Here are the reasons why Christmas it’s my favorite season. There parties aplenty. I can finally rock my ugly Christmas sweater. I get to spend time with family and friends. I can shop until I drop.
Everyone is in a great mood and I can make my own traditions such as my 16th Annual Christmas Day Radio Show title “Island Riddims”.
This year Island Riddims Show will be going back to the norm. Instead of doing it remotely as previous years due to Covid restrictions, I will be doing it live at the Radio stations CKUT 90.3FM. It airs from 11am to 3pm with an endless supply of Parang/Soca vibes.
This year will mark my 16th year anniversary hosting “Island Riddims and I will take live greetings on air by calling (514-448-4013).
I suggest you use this time to cook, decorate and educate the kids about our annual Christmas traditions. Lets not forget that Christmas traditions can provide comfort and are the blueprint on things to do during these times.
Be safe and Season Greetings as I leave you with the recipe to my favourite beverage, Sorrel.
Sorrel is basic of all Caribbean Christmas get together. It contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, calcium, niacin, riboflavin, and more.
Sorrel has been grown for hundreds of years, and has spikes or chalices of reddish-greenish flowers that become purplish when they bloom in the summer. It is a slender plant which grows to roughly 60 to 70 cm in height, with oblong leaves, a juicy stem, and roots that grow deep into the ground.

If you have never tried it nor made it here’s the recipe make and drink you will enjoy:

1 lb sorrel
2 quarts of water
3 oz ginger
2lbs sugar

• Start by boiling water in a large pot, adding sorrel, and then small pieces of ginger.
• After the water comes to its boiling point and the ginger starts to turn the water red, stir occasionally, then turn off the stove.
• Cover the pot with the mixture and allow it to sit overnight to ensure that the mixture brews properly.
• Use a strainer and pour the liquid into a pitcher or bottle. Add a few pieces of pimento and sweeten to taste.
• Chill and serve!
