Guatemalan Christmas Decorations: Corderos de Tusa

We’re Hombres de Maí­z. Follow the white rabbit and you’ll know why!

Corderos (lambs) made from tusa (dried corn husk) are very popular around the Christmas season. As decorations goes, these borregos (lamb) made from natural fibers from the dried corn husks can be found in windows, gardens, front yards, doorways, balconies; you name it and you will find carnero (mutton) there. Heck sometimes you find a whole rebaño (herd). In our home, we have four borregos, two in each balcony.

These corderos de tusa can set you back Q25 each; but they are a wonderful addition the Guatemalan Christmas decoration ensemble. Stay tune because there are about seven more photos in the Guatemalan Christmas decoration series.
