ANANCY & SORREL

RADIOSHOW

 

Anancy and Sorrel
ONCE UPON a time, Christmas Eve morning, it was Grand-Market morning and Bredda Anancy stood by his gateway watching all de people going down to market. The basket on their heads and the hampers on the donkeys were laden with fruits and flowers and ground provision. Anancy called out: ‘Happy Grand-Market, everybody.’
‘Thank yuh, Bredda Nancy,’ replied the people.

Anancy said to himself: ‘Wat a crosses pon me. It look like seh everybody pick off everything off every tree an carry gone a Grand-Market.’ Anancy groaned as a cart-load of oranges and grapefruits went by. ‘Amassie me massa , dem don’t lef a ting ina de fiel fi me scuffle!’

Anancy waited until everybody had passed on their way to the market, then he went from field to field in search of scufflings.
‘Wat a hard set a people, sah!’ Anancy grieved. ‘Dem clean out everyting outa de fiel dem – not a chenks a scufflings fe me.’
Suddenly Anancy exclaimed: ‘Wat a sinting soh red!’ And he broke a long stalk of a long red plant and held it to his nose. ‘It don’t got no smell,’ said Anancy, ‘but it pretty fi look pon. I wonder wat it good for?’

Anancy picked a few more pieces of the red plant and stuck them in his trousers waist, mumbling to himself, ‘Well since yuh is de only ting I can scuffle, I am scuffling you, red sinting. I don’t know what I am going to do with yuh yet. I don’t know if yuh can eat, but I might even haffi eat yuh!’ Anancy laughed: ‘Kya, kya, kya, kya.’

He danced and sang all the way to the Grand-Market. When he got there Anancy looked around at all the beautiful stalls full of fruit kind and cooked food and food cooking. Anancy said to himself: ‘I will have to work up my brains an fine a way to raise something.’ He stopped in front of a stall with plenty of oti-eati apples, pointed to the red plant in his trousers waist, and said to the stall keeper: ‘Hi missis – swap me some a fi-you red tings fi some a fi-mi red tings.’
The woman asked him: ‘Wait fi you red tings name? Anancy seh: ‘Swap me firs and I will tell you.’

The woman replied: ‘Tell me firs and I will swap you.’
Anancy seh: ‘Swap me firs.’ The woman seh: ‘Tell me firs.’
The man in the pumpkin stall next to the woman’s oti-eati stall shouted: ‘Missis, if you want de red tings why you don’t jus grab it away from the lickle man?’
Anancy laughed: ‘Kya, kya, kya,’ and shouted back, ‘Grab it if you bad!’
The man grabbed after Anancy. Anancy said: ‘Slip!’ and ran. The man chased Anancy through the market. Several people joined in the chase, shouting: ‘Tief! Tief! Tief! Catch the tief!’ Anancy kept slipping them,`darting in and out of stalls until he reached the hominy stall.
The hominy lady had a big jester-pot full of boiling water on the fire. She was just about to drop the hominy corn in the pot when Anancy flung the bundle of red plant into the water. The hominy lady screamed: ‘Wat dat yuh trow into me pot?’ The crowd rushed up to the pot. One man exclaimed: ‘It red like blood! It fava wine!’
Anancy looked into the pot and laughed: ‘Kya, kya, kya, kya. It don’t only look like wine,’ he shouted, ‘is wine!’ Anancy mumbled to himself: ‘Poor me bwoy, ah hope is not poison.’

The man who had started the chase rushed forward, grabbed a spoon and tasted the liquid. He made up his face and said: ‘It don’t taste good.’
Anancy said: ‘It don’t finish brew yet:

It want some sugar,
a little piece a ginger
A little cinnamon
And then you stir so
And then you stir so.’
And Anancy took a little of all the spices from the hominy lady’s stall and threw into the pot. Anancy tasted the brew. ‘Kya, kya, kya,’ Anancy laughed. ‘It taste nice like real-real wine.’

The hominy-lady said: ‘It smell nice.’

Anancy looked fondly into the pot and whispered in wonderment:

‘How you so real, so-real, so-real!’
Somebody in the crowd shouted: ‘It name so-real’
The crowd took up in chorus: ‘Truppence wut a so-real. Truppence so-real!’
Anancy brewed and sold so-real all day; it was the most popular drink at the Grand-Market. By the end of the day, in true Jamaica fashion, so-real had become sorrel. And from that day to today, sorrel is a famous Christmas drink. Is Anancy meck it.
Jack Mandora, me noh choose none.

MERRY CHRIST- MUCH

Bible Christmas Story – The Characters
The most amazing truths of the Bible Christmas story revolve around events that make no earthly or human sense. Discovering the real Christmas message requires looking beyond the all-too-familiar holiday experiences. “Was there a moment, known only to God, when all the stars held their breath, when the galaxies paused in their dance for a fraction of a second, and . . . all His love [was poured] into the womb of a young girl”?1 You can read the account of Jesus’ birth from the Bible in Luke 2:1-21.

The individuals in the Bible Christmas story should surprise us. They are unlikely recipients of angelic declarations. Yet through ordinary people such as us, God creates extraordinary events:

The Shepherds – Shepherds were seen as rough, uncultured, untrustworthy fellows. Because of their poor credibility, shepherds weren’t allowed to testify in court. Yet, the first account of Christ’s birth was from the shepherds, who were “glorifying and praising God” (Luke 2:20).
Mary – What had Mary achieved in her 12–14 years to merit a greater honor and blessing than any other woman in the Bible? Mary’s record is brief among that of Sarah, Esther, Naomi, Ruth, or Hannah. Simply, Mary fell into favor with God as He extended His grace to this young woman.
Gabriel – When the archangel shared God’s promise of a son, the aged temple priest, Zechariah, doubted God (Luke 1:18). Zechariah is struck mute. Yet, with faith, young Mary, humbly receives Gabriel’s great proclamation, and responds, “May it be to me as you have said” (Luke 1:38). Mary’s song, “The Magnificat,” reflects the intimate acquaintance that she had with God.
Bible Christmas Story – The Statements
It is easy for the words of the Bible Christmas story to be overshadowed by appropriate clichés: “Jesus is the reason for the season,” or “Keep the Christ in Christmas.” Let us shine light again on the amazing truth that, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1:14).


“God with Us” (Matthew 1:23) – In Exodus, God appeared over us, in the cloud, as a pillar of fire, or on the mountain. But now, in a common feeding trough, He became Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14).
“Good News of Great Joy” (Luke 2:10) – The good news transcended politics, languages, and geography. A Savior is given to all mankind, making us the recipients of God’s good will and favor.
“Lying in a Manger” (Luke 2:12) – We must marvel at the humble entrance of the Eternal, Almighty Creator, God, into our world. The Savior of mankind, found lying in a manger (feeding-trough), thus giving the shepherds a specific sign to guide them to the Christ-Child.
Bible Christmas Story – The Uniqueness
When we stop to consider the Bible Christmas story, we might ask, “What’s wrong with this picture?”

In the world that God created, there was no room for Him at the inn or anywhere. To have “God with us,” the God-Child entered the world in a place where few would even notice.
God’s return to His creation wasn’t “good news” to everyone. No ruler was willing to abdicate their throne. No palace opened their gates to welcome the King of kings or Prince of Peace.
God, who is omnipotent, omnipresent, and all-righteous, longed to touch everyone — the beggar, the prostitute, the leper — presenting Himself, a helpless infant, “lying in a manger.” Common folks can never visit the palace of a newborn king, uninvited. But kings and princes can visit mangers.
There is difference for those who choose to accept the original Bible Christmas story, allowing it to transform their lives. The Nativity scene isn’t designed to put us into a festive “holiday mood.” It should stir us to the very depth of our souls. How will we respond to the Divine Designer of the universe who sacrificed everything to bring us back into a relationship with Him? Take away the decorations, presents, and the food . . . the story is still there. It is still true and our joy is still great! (John 3:16).
