Christmas at Mom's
25 December 2008 | Holmes Rock, Bahamas
Our friends Eddie and Margo, invited us to join them for Christmas Dinner. Later we found out that dinner was to be at her Mom's house....but Mom didn't know we were coming yet. We are learning about Bahamian hospitality....of course Mom would welcome us....and she did. Margo's parents and siblings made us very welcome and made us feel included....like one of the family.
Margo's Dad (Al) walked me around the property (while we were waiting for others to arrive) telling me of building the place with his own hands forty years earlier, showing me the trees, his future plans for building a garden and giving me a warm welcome.
Imagine turkey, ham, cracked conch, fried fish and all kinds of other yummy Bahamian food....love it, love it, love it. We were warned that Margo's family was loud, are they ever. Football game blaring, folks visiting loudly & eventually dancing to Bahamian Shake n' Scrape in Mom's kitchen and living room.
We enjoyed the time and the very warm family hospitality.
