What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Ashmalli

I have always loved Christmas and it has always been my favorite holiday of the year. Growing up in the Caribbean, even though Christmas Days were always hot, it was the most magical time of the year. 

I'm Guyanese and we go all out! We would wash all the windows in preparation for the holidays, paint if anything needed to be retouched up, and decorated our house with new curtains & lights. We would make traditional foods like black cake and macaroni pie, but nothing was better than Christmas Time Pepperpot! Every single Guyanese household makes Pepperpot and freshly baked bread for Christmas morning. Pepperpot is a mash up of different kinds of meats left to cook in a traditional sauce made from cassava (yuca)! It’s full of spices & of course peppers! 

To this day as an adult, Christmas just isn’t the same with out Pepperpot. I enlist my mom to make it for me every year or try my hand at it myself. It’s a lengthy process, but so worth the reward on Christmas Morning. It always takes me back to those Sunny Christmas Days in Guyana!
