Jounen Kwéyòl

jounen kwéyòl (creole day), is a national holiday in st lucia - and is probably one of the most colourful days there are. the holiday aims to celebrate everything about st lucian creole culture, different towns put on festivals and street parties cooking up gorgeous local dishes such as green fig and saltfish, bakes, accra, bouillion and plenty of fresh golden apple juice and cocoa tea. everyone dresses up in national dress, including the most vibrant and beautiful madras. i love how st lucians embrace their culture and heritage and celebrate it in the best way possible, getting together with family and friends, cooking yummy food and having a bit of a party!
