On the last article about the history of Rastafarianism, we talked about how there is no official Rastafari marriage ceremony. Likewise, there is no formal funeral ceremony for Rastafari.

And, one of the Rastafarian-specific holidays is called Groundation Day, which is April 21st. It signifies the day that King Haile Selassie I visited Jamaica in 1966. There is also a huge celebration on Selassie’s birthday, which is July 23rd.

Rastafari have their own accent and dialect that comes from Jamaican Creole. The language uses pronouns differently, like saying “I and I”, instead of “you and me”, in order to include all people as one unit.
