So, it’s been fun being in South America for the lead up to Christmas since it is such a big family holiday here and there are some traditions that look familiar (people dressed as Santa Claus) and others that are new to us. Hope you got your fill of warm weather before returning to chilly New York City!

When I lived in Puerto Rico, I always found it hard to get in the holiday spirit because I associate Christmas with cold weather, but there’s a spirit of celebration in the Caribbean that’s so strong, you can’t ignore it!
