Feliz Navidad

Today is Christmas and all over the world people are celebrating. Here in Mexico we are getting ready to eat lunch while in Europe people are getting ready to go to bed... It is my first Christmas back at home in almost 10 years and eventhough my parents are no longer here to celebrate it as a family, I am very lucky to have friends who have made me feel part of theirs. I am having a really special time, singing carols, singing the traditional Posadas, breaking pinatas, drinking hibbiscus punch and just speaking in Spanish and being with people.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful time with those you love.

PS The Epiphany or Dia de Reyes is an Spanish tradition which is quite strong still in Latin America. It is celebrated on January 5th, but to us Spanish speakers it is also a symbol of the Christmas season. That is why I whose this subject matter for my Christmas cards this year.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
