“It is the end of the rainy season and the beginning of the Christmas season. The mahogany workers are coming home from camp to families they have not seen for months. The women and children are looking forward to the festivities ahead. What made those festivities in the Christmas season so exciting? The Bram, of course. And what, might you ask, is the Bram? The Bram is a spree traditionally done during the Christmas season. It is like an exodus of people dancing in the streets from one house to the next, the goal of which is to spread the merrymaking by singing, dancing and playing music at each house as a sign of good cheer. Traditionally, bramming occurred in Belize City (old Belize Town) and in the villages along the Belize River Valley; and later in most other Kriol (Creole) communities in Belize. As urban Belize City embraced less traditional Christmas celebrations, the Bram became relegated to the countryside where it still relishes a critical presence…….”

This Christmas, Belizeans and visitors will be able to experience the Christmas Bram at the second annual Mista Peetaz Brukdong Bram Festival behind the historic Court House on December 14th through 16th. This annual festival, focusing primarily on the Creole Culture, will bring together cultural music, foods and drinks: all culminating on the 16th. The festival will be brought to you through the auspices of the Belize City House of Culture and Downtown Rejuvenation Project, NICH and Love FM.
