THIS IS PART OF A SPONSORED COLLABORATION WITH LATINA MOM BLOGGERS AND JCPENNEY. HOWEVER, ALL OPINIONS EXPRESSED ARE MY OWN.
The Christmas holidays may be over for us, but in Mexico they are just getting ready to celebrate. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own traditions that we forget not everyone celebrates the holidays like us here in America. In Mexico, January 6th is a special day. It is Christmas in Mexico but it’s not Santa that brings the gifts, but the Three Wise Men. The tradition in Mexico also involves gift giving but there is also food specific to this day. “Rosca de Reyes” which means the Kings Cake is a sweet bread and is usually served with hot chocolate.
Check out the video to below of Alondra talking about her family’s tradition in Mexico. This is the third and last video in the “Real Holidays by Real Families” series by JCPenney. Ive really enjoyed watching the video series that JCPenney put together and seeing how other families celebrate the holidays. You can watch the first video or second video in the series if you missed any. I encourage you to join in the conversation they have going on over on the JCPenney Latino Facebook page.
I hope you enjoyed the video series! I loved reading all the comments left from everyone over the last few weeks and reading how you and your family celebrate. One fun tradition I think we are starting is the matching PJ’s on Christmas Eve for Christmas morning photos.
The best photo of them together. But they are wearing matching Dora the Explorer PJ”s. 🙂
Now it’s time to get ready for the new year! Happy Holidays!!
