Christmas came like a brilliant flash of light, and then it dimmed and extinguished like a candle. Now the country is starting another rat race to jollify the end of the year. People will buzz like honeybees collecting food and other decorations for the New Year’s celebrations. Year 2015 is only three days ahead. I can hear the following words reverberating inside my head; “five, four, three, two, one, zero—Happy New Year-2015!”
Instead of mangoes, papayas, watermelons or guavas; we will choreograph pears, apples and grapes on the midnight dinner table. Those are the traditional fruits to celebrate the new year. Here at home we follow the same tradition. It has always been the same way since I was a kid growing up in a banana plantation in the middle of nowhere called Changuinola.
Below are several close-up pictures of traditional exotic fruits which will deck our New Year’s dinner table. Here we go.
