Sweet bread, a cross between a rich bread & dessert, is made from yeast dough, thus requiring home bakers to work like elves all night long to mix, knead, & bake the breads. The sweetness comes from a combination of sugar & dried fruits, while spices typically include cloves, nutmeg, mace, cardamom, & cinnamon. Some bakers combine dried fruits like raisins, currents, & prunes in a large bottle & steep them in rum or brandy for several weeks - or months - before adding to the batter. Whole pieces of dried fruits, including candied red & green cherries, are artistically laid in the top of the dough to make a signature design.
Traditionally, even neediest families had a big ham at Christmastime. This was either purchased from pennies saved or as a gift from a thoughtful neighbor, employer, or even shopkeeper. Decades ago, it was common for Virgin Islands' grocers to hand out hams to their customers in appreciation for their patronage during the year.
Island residents today line up outside refrigerated trailers to purchase their Christmas pine imported from the U.S. main-land. Long ago, they instead went in search of an inkberry tree or the brown dried stalk of a century plant or agave that had flowered a few months prior. Both of these grew in the wild; the inkberry in the islands' forests and the century plant or agave on the arid eastern end of the islands. The trees or stalks were brought inside, propped up in a rock-filled container & decorated with items such as small candies, crepe paper or bits of fabric.

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you."
Verse 6 -- "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned."
Then Yeshua said, “I am the true vine, and my Father takes care of the vineyard. 2 He removes every one of my branches that doesn’t produce fruit. He also prunes every branch that does produce fruit to make it produce more fruit.
3 “You are already clean[a] because of what I have told you. 4 Live in me, and I will live in you. A branch cannot produce any fruit by itself. It has to stay attached to the vine. In the same way, you cannot produce fruit unless you live in me.
5 “I am the vine. You are the branches. Those who live in me while I live in them will produce a lot of fruit. But you can’t produce anything without me. 6 Whoever doesn’t live in me is thrown away like a branch and dries up. Branches like this are gathered, thrown into a fire, and burned. 7 If you live in me and what I say lives in you, then ask for anything you want, and it will be yours. 8 You give glory to my Father when you produce a lot of fruit and therefore show that you are my disciples. John 15: 1-5
“I am the real vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 Every branch which is part of me but fails to bear fruit, he cuts off; and every branch that does bear fruit, he prunes, so that it may bear more fruit.3 Right now, because of the word which I have spoken to you, you are pruned.4 Stay united with me, as I will with you — for just as the branch can’t put forth fruit by itself apart from the vine, so you can’t bear fruit apart from me. John 15:1-4
