Throwback Thursday :Jamaican Women by Parishes

This song was one of my favorites growing up and has been stuck in my head all week. One of Jamaica’s most popular and respected band Fab 5, travel around the island listing the characteristics of Jamaican women from each parish in the island. It is common in Jamaica to generalize people’s personality by their birth month as well as where they are from. In case you’re wondering I’m from St. Elizabeth so according to Fab 5 , I’m pretty but I want to get married as soon as I’m being courted . I will say this characterization is about 50% true. What generalizations are made of women from your city or country?
