Guatemalan Christmas Decorations: Chicuyas

Guatemalan Christmas Decorations: Chicuyas

Chicuyas is the name by which Guatemalans name the part of the pine tree, which I don’t its English name (can you help me with the English name for part of the pine tree). The pine tree provides many elements of the Christmas decorations for Guatemalans, like the pine needle that is spread on the floor as carpet. The pine needles provide an important aroma to the Christmas season in Guatemala.

Hey, it just occurred to me that Guatemalan Christmas Decorations could be a nice series. What do you think?

    Pues a series on Christmas decorations has my vote. Do you happen to have a pic of a “chiribisco”?

    • @emromesco, thanks for letting me know about the broken feed. I always keep this website running with the most recent software and sometimes things break; I appreciate it very much when you guys let me know when something is broken. I have fixed the ress feeds and you should start receiving the daily updates again. 😉
