Jamaica Consul General Christmas Greeting 2015
Jamaican Consulate Miami Christmas & New Year’s Message From The Consul General Of Jamaica – Miami
No matter where we are in the world, I know that the traditions of a Jamaican Christmas will be observed to the fullest extent possible. But as we eat, drink and celebrate in our own unique way, let us also find ways of sharing the spirit of the Season with those who are in need.
In reflecting on 2015, we can say that it has been a challenging year for Jamaica as we continued to grapple with issues that affect all Jamaicans whether at home or in the Diaspora. However, despite these challenges, Jamaicans shone brilliantly and positively affected the global community.
Who can forget the impact of Kaci Fennel who many felt was cheated out of the Miss Universe crown, or Usain Bolt and Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce who led the superb Jamaican team to a triumphant 13 medals at the IAAF World Championships, or Marlon James, Jamaican author who was awarded the Man Booker prize which recognizes excellence in fiction.
