There’s just something special and different about Christmas with your Latino family. Is it the fragrance of freshly cooked tamales steaming in their soft corn husks? Or the happy giggles of little ones gently rearranging Abuela’s nativity scene? Or that groggy but satisfied feeling you have the morning after Noche Buena and midnight mass?
It’s something more essential than any of those things. For you, the ultimate joy is the simple delight of being surrounded by your whole family as you come together once again to glorify the birth of Christ. It’s in those familiar sayings, that easy laughter, and that homey warmth that can only mean one thing: La Navidad is here again.
Pear Tree knows that Christmas is your favorite time of year, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with traditions that unite your family and honor your heritage. The holiday is not merely a chance to end up with the largest stack of torn paper and ribbon; it’s a sacred opportunity to pray, laugh, and feast with those you love most. It’s all about la familia. As Vanessa Bell writes,
“La Navidad for Latinos is not solely a child-centered occasion designed to shock and awe all the senses. Like the entirety of Latino cultures, Christmas celebrations are rooted in family. They assume that children should contribute, too. It’s a beautiful thing to grow up with the feeling of having purpose; that, even as a child, you influence the collective happiness of your family.” (Source)
