Christmas just around the corner

Efate MeleMaat kids gardens blogWhilst parents are still trailing behind, these kids want to get home fast, prepare island spinach, grate coconut for mum to later do lunch, and play football while waiting.

Life is never boring in the islands. There is always something to keep the little ones including mums and dads occupied, and everyday its the gardens where villagers head to in the break of dawn to clean and harvest vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, and check their chicken & pig traps to see if they're lucky. Just an everyday thing the locals do in the villages. 

And now that Christmas is just around the corner, the fun and festive vibes are more visible as people start to decorate their place with coconut leaves, ornaments are usually bundles of green coconuts, bananas and pineapples hanging down from the kitchen beam, suger canes, gingers and lillies are tied to kitchen posts.
