Guatemalan Christmas Decorations: Pino

Guatemalan Christmas Decorations: Pino

Pino is the name by which Guatemalans refer to the pine needles used as Christmas decorations, specifically, to spread around the floor and nacimientos. Pine needles and the chamomile rings provide the scent for a typical Guatemalan Navidad (Christmas).

    I feel as if I was 9yrs old, I can still remember the aromas of a guatemalan xmas.

  • What a wonderful blog! I just got back from Guatemala this Tuesday and loved experiencing some of the sights and smells of Christmas there. I absolutely love how pine needles are used as carpets. I’ll be posting about that soon on my blog.

    Thanks for the great work! I’ve added you to my blog list, so my readers can find you, too!
