Guatemalan Christmas Decorations: Corderos de Pashte

Guatemalan Christmas Decorations: Corderos de Pashte

You saw the lambs made from dried corn husks just a few days ago. Then you saw the Spanish moss or pashte as it’s known in Guatemala. Finally, you saw the pashte being used as a carpet for the Nativity scenes known as Nacimientos in Guatemala. Last but not least, I bring to you the corderos de pashte (lambs made from Spanish moss) as the conclusion for the Guatemalan Christmas Decorations series.

I certainly hope that you have enjoyed the series and that it brought sweet forgotten memories to all Guatemalans living abroad.

Please leave your comments and feedback to let me know what I could have done better or things I should have done a different way.

  • I ended up reading all your Christmas decoration posts — I love the entire series! Very informative and lovely. I like the fact that you use natural materials. Filipinos use many different natural materials for decorations too, but it has been changing because resin and other synthetic materials are usually cheaper and last for many years.

    I hope you and your family had a peaceful, wonderful Christmas, Rudy! Again, thank you for the lovely posts.

  • I loved the decoration series!! I haven’t lived in Antigua for 6 or 7 years now, so I absolutely love your blog. It takes me back to so many wonderful memories! Keep it up and thank you SOOOO much for all your hard work!

    This was an excellent series! Every time you do a “series” I think “I really need to go during that time next year.” At this point, my visit to LAG would start in Jan. and go the entire year. Rudy, I wish you and your family the very best Happy New Year, and offer sincerest thanks for these articles. Your extended family (your readers) enjoy and appreciate them very much!

  • Thank you again! This is wonderful! I’ll have to be on the lookout for all these things the next time I go.
