Christmas with the Family

On Tuesday, Tammi and I went out to Long Island to my Aunt’s place, a long time tradition.

As you can see a good time was had by all. Many gadgets were given and received, including the Bose Soundock that provided the soundtrack to the day’s festivities (see above).

My uncle Errol once again cooked up a wonderful spread of Jamaican food. There was Ackee and Saltfish and Callalloo for breakfast. For dinner there was Curry Goat and my mom’s Escovitch Fish.

The day has become much more low key in the last few years, the traffic has died down from the previous hundred or so people who pass through to the relative handful of a couple dozen. I’ve been resisting the call of the fam for the last few years, only begrudgingly attending this year because everyone insisted that Tammi had to come experience Christmas. I did enjoy it despite myself, and Tammi had a great time.

Now on to New Year’s!
