Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad…

Feliz Navidad

Christmas is such a quite and relax day in Guatemala, except for the burning of fireworks and firecrackers at noon and 6 p.m., most Guatemalans stay home watching movies, sleeping, eating and spending time with the family.

How does your family celebrate Christmas?

    I love the watermelon and pineapple in this nativity. They are not only charming, but also a wonderful embodiment of the personal nature of faith. Not a distant, once-upon-a-time, historically inaccurate but assumed to be real, kind of image — it, instead, is a collapse of time that brings the past and present together in a real and meaningful way.

    As for Christmas here (in my interfaith home in the USA)…On Christmas eve we had friends over for dinner. The meal was a traditional one in my husband’s family: lasagna, spaghetti, meatballs, sausage, assorted vegetables. Our new tradition: a snowman-shaped cake that I make. On Christmas morning our son opened presents under the Christmas tree (1 from Santa, 1 from mom, 1 from dad, and assorted gifts from grandparents). Then he played. After lunch we all napped. Then we watched a couple of children’s Christmas movies. The rest of the weekend has been taken up with baking cookies, playing and ice skating.
