Good Reggae Music
Every Jamaican loves some good Reggae music. If they are Rasta then they will enjoy Rastafari Reggae Music. Many Jamaican love…Dennis Brown, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh Music etc. We grew up listening to it… Its pretty much in our blood.
To Be at Home
A lot of Jamaicans like being at home. Why not? Its the place where most people feel comfortable right? Jamaican love to come home after a long days work, change into some comfy clothes and flick the Tv on and relax. Maybe even drink a beer. Jamaicans see their home as their palace. No matter how big or no matter how small.
To Party all night
Jamaicans love to party all night. I love to party all night too. The best way to party all night, is in Jamaica. Wow, the music is like no other. The DJ selctors are out of this world. The movement and passion of the people in the party is like no other. The vibe is so out of this world. I love Jamaica. Dancing all night is such a good feeling, and a good work out too.
Some good jamaican Food
Jamaican people love to eat a nice hearty Jamaican meal. When we dont get “our” food we can get out of balance and in a bad mood. I kid you not. It is in our blood. We need to have our own food.
Black American Comedy
Jamaican love a good Black American Comedy. We also love some Jamaican comedy too. Somehow I think the black american comedy is a little bit funnier to us. LoL
Jamaican love to dress up. Only a Jamaican can get away with an outfit that matches in color from head to toe and make it look good. A Jamaican man or woman, has the attitude and the “swag” to pull it off. LOL. I love my people.
Jamaican love the Jamaican flag. And why not? It represents Jah. Here is an excerpt from my book on Rastafari about the Jamaican flag.
“The Yellow X Represents the Strength of the Jamaican people.
I like to see the “x”as two crossed arms with clenched fists, breaking the Shackles and chains of Bondage/Slavery.
The color Green represents the abundance of lush Green nature of the Land
The color Black represents the beautiful black people of Jamaica…”
A clean Home!
This is extremely important. I have met only one Jamaican in my life that didnt mind living in a filthy home. All the other Jamaicans that I have known kept their home so clean from top to bottom, you could eat food off their floors. Wow. My sister used to mop her kitchen floor every night before going to sleep. Her home was always clean. A clean home makes a Jamaican feel at peace, and comfortable.
Jamaicans love God. Ok not all, but many Jamaican people are very passionate about the Almighty. It is from this passion that we get Rastafari. If you want to buy a Jamaican a good Christmas gift get him a Picture of Christ, he or she will appreciate it.
Jamaicans love Jamaica! Many Jamaicans who live abroad have a burning desire, to “go back home.” There is no where like Jamaica. There are places similar, but only Jamaica is Jamaica. Jamaicans miss, the nature of Jamaica, the Culture of Jamaica, the music of Jamaica, the ease of Jamaica. Home is home, no matter who you are or where you come from. Many Jamaicans have at least one item in their home with a map of Jamaica on it. Either a clock, or a place mat, or a mug, …Something that shows the parishes and is in the shape of the Island of Jamaica.
Money to Spend as we wish
Jamaicans love to have money to spend. Yes, I know we all do, but Jamaicans have such passion deep down inside that we do not like any type of restriction. This is why we are very hard working and love to have our own money to spend as we please.
