Like many of you U.S. dwellers, we are also in the midst of preparing for the holidays here in Mexico! Unfortunately for Jeff, I LOVE Christmas and always have, so he very nicely tolerates the music and the decorating and agrees to celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah both 🙂 Actually, a couple of weeks ago, HE encouraged ME to go to a Christmas expo here in the city. (I’m pretty sure it was because someone told him there would be lots of food there but no matter…) It was very interesting and there was indeed a lot of food to try. There were booths selling foods and wares native to many of the different states throughout Mexico. We had a great time browsing and buying some gifts.
Of course, decorating the apt. was completely essential, so we have been collecting all of the necessary things for doing this. First, a tree!
A couple of weeks ago when we were at Doug and Theresa’s for Thanksgiving, we noticed that they had found really cool piñatas and used them to decorate their apt for the holidays. We originally found very small ones but were still looking for the larger ones. We finally found the larger ones this past weekend. Now of course, we have seen them everywhere since! They are very popular and each one is a little bit different in color and design.
Finally, we just bought a wreath for our door today. We got it in Coyoacán and the guy we bought it from says that is is made entirely from corn husks.
We hope all of our readers are enjoying their holidays preparations as much as we are!
