A St. Thomas tradition is to go to the Emancipation Garden at dawn on Christmas Day, where choirs will sing carols as the sun rises over the horizon. There are some traditional carols about Santa Claus, but most of the indigenous carols are about food or rum. Reggae Christmas music is also very popular.
