Eid-Ul-Fitr

Day 5 #FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge

I was challenged by +Tom E. Gee Thank you.

Eid-Ul-Fitr in Trindad and Tobago is marked with great sadness and jubilation. Sadness that the blessed month of Ramadan has ended, and great happiness that the fast has been completed and Insha'Allah (God willing) the fast would have been accepted.

Muslims in Trinidad and Tobago celebrate the end of fasting and thank God for giving them the strength and courage that he gave them through the month of Ramadan to do and complete the fast each and every day, and for helping them practice self control. On the day of Eid, the Eid prayer is recited in congregation at the mosques or in an outdoor area to accommodate the large numbers who attend this prayer. New clothes are bought to be worn to mosque for Eid prayer and Mehindi or henna is applied to the hands of the sisters.

Eid celebration.

I invite +Brown Sugar Edwards to do the challenge.

Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago

Day 3 #FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge

I was challenged by +Tom E. Gee Thank you.

One of the best holidays on the island, Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago is a very happy and joyous occasion. Families commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ by going to church on Christmas Eve night for Midnight Mass. Christmas is also a memorable event that is celebrated by large gatherings of families and friends. Sumptuous meals are prepared, and visitors are invited to partake in the feast. These visitors include not only family and friends, but also those groups of people known as Paranderos who go from house to house serenading the members of the home with indigenous Spanish carols, known as Parang.

There are many traditions for Christmas time in Trinidad and Tobago, it includes the lighting up of The Crèche which is done at the beginning of the Advent season and pictured is The Crèche at Santa Rosa Church in Arima, playing sweet Parang music which fills the air, and cleaning and decorating the home and putting up new curtains and linens. The best part of Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago is the food and drink. Traditional foods served at Christmas time consists of generous helpings of ham, turkey, pastelles, fruit cake, black cake, sweet bread, and other selected delicacies, along with traditional drinks such as sorrel, ginger beer, and ponche de crème. Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago is one of the best times of the year. You feel the happiness and love even more.

Trinidad And Tobago Independence

At a few minutes to midnight on 30th August, 1962 the Union Jack was lowered marking the end of British rule. At the stroke of midnight on 31st August, 1962 the National Flag of Trinidad And Tobago rose gracefully to the top marking the birth of our nation and an independent nation within the Commonwealth Of Nations.

The first Parliament of independent Trinidad And Tobago was inaugurated by her Royal Highness who delivers the throne speech. After, Dr. Eric Williams, the first Prime Minister of the newly independent nation of Trinidad And Tobago addresses the Parliament and the people. The Prime Minister gave his speech and said this nation will be built on discipline, tolerance, and production.

Divali

Day 4 #FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge 

I was challenged by +Tom E. Gee Thank you.

Divali in Trinidad and Tobago form an integral part of our society. A large percentage of the population consists of East Indians and a significant amount of them are Hindus. The celebration of Divali in Trinidad and Tobago is marked as a national holiday with a significant number of functions held to celebrate the occasion. Within recent times the celebration has not only been extended to the homes and communities, but organisations have also embraced this festival with special events held to commemorate this occasion. This is evident in banks, schools, and other organisations where members of staff organise Divali cultural programmes, dress in Indian ethnic wear and distribute sweets and prasad to their staff and customers.

Divali celebrations are held at the Divali Nagar site with an opening ceremony of dance and music. The weeks leading up to Divali, Hindus in Trinidad and Tobago clean and redecorate their homes to mark this auspicious occasion. They also maintain a period of abstinence or fasting. The day of Divali is marked with a host of activities in the homes where various dishes and sweets are prepared and Pooja (prayer) is performed. Most Hindus would offer Jhal (offering of water and flowers in a brass vessel called Lota) early in the morning. Family members participate in evening worship at 6 o’clock to Mother Lakshmi, the Goddess of prosperity and wealth. They then light their homes with several dozens of deyas and distribute prasad and other delicacies to their families, friends and the community. This sacred festival is known to bring about positive feelings in the community, marked by unity, cleanliness, harmony and festivity.

The festival of lights.

Carnival

Day 2 #FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge

I was challenged by +Tom E. Gee Thank you.

Referred to as the greatest show on earth, Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago is one of grandeur, colour, revelry, rhythm, and gaiety. Evolving over the years from an elegant, exclusive affair to a truly all inclusive national festival, it is by far the most spectacular event on the nation’s calendar. A major part of Carnival Trinidad and Tobago is its ability to bring people of diverse backgrounds together in harmonious circumstances.

The pace accelerates for Carnival with lots of Fetes, concerts, and parties. The high energy of the Soca music, the sweet melody of hearing the Steelpan, seeing the traditional Carnival characters like the Moko Jumbie and Fancy Indians, and feeling the liberation of the Carnival season, it is amazing. Carnival culminates with the Dimanche Gras on Sunday night. It is then followed by J’Ouvert in the we hours of Carnival Monday. And finally, the Parade Of The Bands on Carnival Tuesday which shows revellers wearing elaborate Carnival costumes. After Carnival ends, the tradition is, on Ash Wednesday you cool down at Maracas Beach and have yourself a Bake and Shark.

The amazing celebration of Carnival Trinidad and Tobago.
