In Jamaica, Rice and peas is cooked in every house hold.
The night before a funeral is being kept, there is a a little get together/ part called nine night/ dead yard. This is where drums are beaten which sometimes leads to people being possessed by spirits. Then as a tribute to the deceased an animal chicken/goat head is chopped off and the blood and white rum is sprinkled.
