One of the traditional costumes, this one is  called “Cow Head”  is worn during the Junkanoo Street parade in Jamaica during the Christmas Seasons. Boxing Day,is a British holiday, the day after christmas. Its is celebrated with much festivity and Parades. The Fear of the “Junkanoo Band” was the highlight of the parade for Children. I remember being chased into my yard, by one of these members, all the way in my house, under my bed. Haven,t been scared of anything since. it is tied to West African origins, as the costumes and conduct of the masqueraders bear similarities with the Yoruba Egun festivals. It is believed that this Celebration began during the 16th and 17th centuries in the British Colonies. The slaves were given a special holiday around Christmas time when they would be able to leave the plantations to be with their family and celebrate the holidays with African dance, music, and costumes. After emancipation, this tradition continued, and Junkanoo has evolved from its simple origins to a formal, more organized parade with sophisticated, intricate costumes, themed music and incentive prizes. Of course, we all are familiar with the Great masquerade Festivals that is Celebrated in Trinidad.
