Christmas Time- Family Time
We know its Christmas time in Jamaica when the barrels start rolling in. I remember back in the day, before we had all these new mail options, that folks would be lined up outside the post office to get barrel from Foreign. Christopher Kennedy, president of Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association was quoted as saying, "Business this year for customs brokers is probably the worst we have seen in many years."
Kennedy said the absence of the usual rush at the wharves in Kingston at this time of the year was evidence.
Tings kinda "salt" this year though. The economy has made many items scarce and the shipping fee has gone up as well. Seems folks sending "gift cards" now.
