The celebration of Christmas in the Caribbean is not only inimitable but also one of those experiences that one would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the world.

The sun-drenched white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, comfortable seasonal temperatures that allow for boating, fishing, and assorted leisure activities are magical and priceless.

During the Yuletide season, everything is turned up a notch and it’s non-stop celebration throughout the holiday period.

The order of the celebration — food galore, street parades, beat of drums, vibrant colors, blaring music, and a wide range of beverages.

The Christmas celebration is always infused with the Caribbean beat in songs.

Some of these include:

Calypso Rose – Oh Christmas

Singing Francine – Hurray Hurrah

Mighty Shadow – From Me To You

Warm Jamaican Christmas Time – Baby Cham & Wayne Wonder

Happy Christmas – Toots & The Maytals

Merry Merry Christmas – Alton Ellis

Holy Christmas – The Cimmarons

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus – Johnny Clarke

Ding Dong Bell – The Ethiopians
