Greetings,

Chillin’ like a villain with my family. Hope you are able to do the same this Holiday. I am grateful for anyone who listens to Smile Jamaica and these streams.

While I enjoy a few weeks away, and some cratedigging to refresh for 2017, enjoy this Christmas heavy duty edition of the Smile Jamaica Ark-ives.

Merry Christmas to the Prince of Peace. Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and any other year end skygod festivities of your choosing!
