Christmas is the best time of the year. It celebrates and recalls the birth of the Messiah. One thing is very common in Christmas carols, the arrival of the fat cakes and plenty of tasty sweets, and also the ornaments are placed as Christmas trees, Santa Claus, some wise men and a birth in Bethlehem or that usually appear Jose Mery and Jesús. I like much the Christmas addition to the above, it is when it's snow that covers everything like a white robe but cold, very cold.The Spanish have taken to Santa Claus as usual on Christmas Eve character. But the most traditional is the day of the Magi, he says so because on that day all the children usually receive their Christmas gift. With Christmas I'm happy!

I like the Christmas, because it is a time when the family meets making a traditional dinner. Christmas is calebrating the birth of Jesus the Messiah.
I like it because I love those moments when familia. We meets all dinner at my grandparents house and not had a good time.
After dinner, my cousin was dressed as Santa Claus and distributed gifts to her young cousins.
They enjoy it.
I hope we go very well for Christmas.

Hello! Here I’m going to write about how we celebrate Christmas.

Christmas is one of the most festive times of the year. We all celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
Among the main traditions we have the following: we sing Christmas carols, we eat together with our family and we decorate our homes with Christmas trees, Nativity Scenes and other ornaments.

We celebrate Christmas Eve with two very important traditions, eating an enormous meal, and going to Christmas mass. Some of the food that we eat in this night is roast lamb and suckling pig, shrimp, crab, hake, trout, and salmon. For dessert, we can have turrón and mazapán, as well as polvorones, and different nuts and dried fruits. To drink, we can have a glass of cava, wine and other drinks.

On Christmas day, we spend time with our families, we eat another large meal, and the children enjoy the gifts that we receive from “Papa Noel”.

On New Year’s Eve, we gave dinner with the family and when the clock strikes 12, the church bells sound 12 times, and at this moment, everybody have to eat 12 grapes, one for each toll of the bell. If you eat the 12 grapes you will have a year full of prosperity and good luck. After that, we go out to celebrate the New Year with our family and friends.

On January 5th , we go to a parade where we see the three kings. Later, before going to bed, we leave our shoes out in the window and we go to bed. Next morning we find our gifts next to the Christmas tree. For breakfast, we often have the “Roscón de Reyes”.

Happy Christmas and a Happy New year!!!

*---The Christmas carols are songs typicals of Chistmas.---*

---Introduction of " Christmas ":
Christmas or Christmas Day is an annual holiday, celebrated on December 25, that commemorates the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.
The date of commemoration is not known to be Jesus's actual birthday, and may have initially been chosen to correspond with either the day exactly nine months after some early Christians believed Jesus had been conceived, a historical Roman festival, or the winter solstice.

---The Christmas Day.
Christmas Day is celebrated as a major festival and public holiday in most countries of the world, even in many whose populations are not majority Christian.
In Christianity, Christmas is the festival celebrating the Nativity of Jesus, the Christian belief that the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament's Messianic prophecies was born to the Virgin Mary. The story of Christmas is based on the biblical accounts given in the Gospel of Matthew.

---Decoration of these holidays:
In these holidays the houses are decorated with Christmas adornments externally and within the houses, they have Christmas trees and crib.

I like very much the Christmas Holidays because I pass it with my family and my friends, specially with my family.

I celebrate Christmas Eve in my house with my mum, my father, my brothers, my grandmother, my grandfather, my uncle Rafael and my other uncle Juan.

My grandmother prepare soup of fish for dinner, and my mother prepare of pawn. I help, and I make little tost with salmon and caviar.

That night is to mention as Good Nigth ( Noche Buena ).

In the 31 of December, is celebraty the as Old Night.
These nigth, all the family ( aunts, counts, cousins, grandsfathers and grandmothers...)

All have very food, and we old are very happy.

Later of dinner, we eat grapes and later the people yound go with a party and I go with my friends.

These night the children receive gifts, and I too.

Bye-Bye!!! And Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

The Christmas is the best time to celebrate it with your family, friends...
Because of it I like very much the winter and also because it is my birthday Also there is celebrated the birth of Jesus, the Messiah.
We celebrate enough days; one of them is the Christmas Eve, 24th Dicienbre, which simultaneously it is also when there comes Dad Noel and in the night it he brings gifts to the children who behave themselves well.
Almost the whole people celebrate it meeting with his family.
On 25th December, which is A Christmas, which celebrates the midnight mass.
On December 31, which is New Year's Eve it is celebrated equally, with to family. But at twelve o'clock in the night they give twelve rings and it is a tradition twelve grapes to take, and after this it begins a new year.
Finally On 6th Jenuary, which is when kings come magicians and there bring gifts to praise children who have behaved themselves well. Then in the evening in almost all the peoples villages and cities kings happen for the streets magicians in his cavalcades throwing candies and later they give gifts to all the children who have represented.
