Mexican Christmas fun!

Are you coming for holidays to Mexico or are you a foreigner who lives here?

Those of us who live here sometimes find we miss our old Christmas traditions and then again sometimes we desire to create some new ones.

Maybe we can create a mix of old and new traditions this year.

Here are some ideas to get the Christmas fun started whether you live in Mexico or are coming for the holidays …

- Whack a piñata. It is good exercise too as real Mexican piñatas are very hard.
- Build a sand castle to represent Santa’s tropical home.
- Throw sand in the air and pretend it is snow.
- Decorate a palm tree.
- Swim in a cenote and pretend its glacial water.
- Go Christmas shopping in shorts and a t-shirt.
- Swim in the ocean with an inflatable reindeer and call out ho ho ho.
- Drink “Abuelita” hot chocolate with mini marshmallows floating in it because the weather is kind of cold. Cream tequila in it is optional.
- Put a turkey in to cook and go for a swim.

Also on Christmas Eve don’t forget to put out a non alcoholic margarita with some chips and salsa for Santa and some banana or mango chips for the reindeer.

What are your ideas?

Enjoy the Adventure!

With great love, Suzanne

Awww..that's really cute!

I loove Abuelita hot chocolate!! I'm spending Christmas in Canada this year, but I always find it so funny to see all the Christmas decorations on the homes here! Santa on a roof all lit up with palm trees in the background, HA. For a gal from Calgary it's just funny!

You know I was just thinking today about some things to do here for Christmas/New Year's since my brother is coming to visit. Thanks for the ideas - we definitely plan on whacking a couple piñatas!

Love your ideas! The piñata is a must for Mexican Christmas tradition. And Abuelita with a shot of tequila is a must! :D
