The Garifuna communities in Belize celebrate an important cultural tradition during the Christmas and New Year holidays. The Habinahan Wanaragua Jankunu Festival (also known as the John Canoe festival) is a traditional Garifuna dance festival which sees masked and costumed dancers parading the streets and roaming from house to house accompanied by the beat of drummers. The festival is held in Dangriga, where Garifuna drummers and dancers from all over Belize gather for a dance showdown.
We wanted to share with you this festive recipe for Rum Popo. Rum Popo is the Belizean equivalent to the holiday drink Egg Nog.

We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do and that you can bring the tropical flavors of Belize into your home during the Holidays.
