Christmas in the U.S. Virgin Islands
The traditions of the Virgin Islands came from French heritage.
Christmas traditions starts on the Virgin Islands starts with the cleaning of the homes inside and out. Walls are scrubbed, paint reapplied, drapes are cleaned and hung, and decorations go up.
Homes fill with the aroma of vanilla, cinnamon, anise and guavaberry liqueur.
All cooking and baking for the Christmas feasts had to be complete before Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.
Early afternoon of Christmas Day was the time for family and friends to visit. Music, singing and dancing would follow.
