My favorite tradition is Christmas. Christmas means being together with my family, and I feel closer to God during these days. Every year we gather and celebrate at my parents’ house. We spend the day cooking our traditional food like pozole, tamales, buñuelos, atole, and ponches. We usually have dinner at 9:00 pm. Before dinner, we pray and thank God for this amazing day and for all the blessings that he has given us. After dinner, we talk a lot about our lives, jobs, and family.
Then we sing beautiful Christmas songs such as Jingle Bells, Feliz Navidad, and Ave Maria. Later, we break the piñata with the children. All the time we are laughing because it is so fun to hit the piñata. Finally, at 12 a.m. we pray to God, and we say “Merry Christmas!” to each other. Christmas is very important to me because the whole family is reunited, and we show our love to each other on this blessed day.
