Grenada increased national freedom from Britain a simple 43 years prior on February seventh 1974.
Like a common Caribbean island we have an additional conventional measure of national pride. Paving the way to our autonomy day festivities Grenadians become additional Grenadian.
Here are 5 different ways you can praise our national freedom in like a Grenadian:
Our National dish Oil down and water
In the weeks and days before we commend our national autonomy it appears as though everybody is chasing for breadfruit to cook our national dish: Oil Down. No breadfruit… no oil down, that is the standard. Oil Down is a one pot feast. It contains: breadfruit (shock!), nearby ground arrangement, fig (green bananas), carrots, pumpkin, callaloo, flour dumplings, turmeric (which we call saffron), coconut milk and salt meat or salt fish.
On autonomy day you will discover individuals cooking outside utilizing goliath pots on an open fire at the sea shore, on stream banks and street sides. Its an enjoyment public vibe and everybody gets included… regardless of whether it is to keep the cook company.There is a craftsmanship to preparing this feast called pressing the pot. The fixings that take the longest to cook are at the base and the ones that take minimal measure of cooking time are at the top.
Whole Island is decorated with Grenadian flags and our National color
When the new years fervor quiet down the Grenadian banners and our national hues start to show up all over the place. On the off chance that you have ever determined around the island you realize that our island is as of now genuinely embellished in red yellow and green. Around Independence it gets… well… somewhat crazy.
Individuals are not absolving from being embellished in the national hues. You can purchase full autonomy day suits for the two grown-ups and youngsters. Around autonomy day there is nothing of the sort as being excessively enthusiastic!
See kid parade in street in our national colors
This is perhaps probably the cutest sight in all of human presence, or if nothing else top 10. Little youngsters wearing Grenada themed garments march through the avenues with their group instructors singing Independence tunes. Any individual who went to grade school in Grenada belted out tunes like “We are from Grenada you don’t mind.The flavor island of the west indies!!!”. The entire undertaking is essentially charming and will make them ponder multiplication sooner rather than later.
Lime by Beach or by River
On autonomy day you will discover gatherings of individuals with abundant measures of nourishment and a cooler pressed with drinks (bounty rum is required) liming at the sea shore, close to cascades and by streams. It is a day of fellowship, chuckles and bounty ole talk.
There is a motorcade put on by state which happens at the National Stadium situated in our capital ward: St. George’s. Individuals from all arms of the Royal Grenada Police Force, a police walking band and different young lady and scouts participate. Not at all like different approaches to observe Independence Day like a Grenadian this one is very formal and authority. In any case, one prerequisite remains… wear our national hues!
