Merry Christmas

Dear Global Youth Parnter Friends,

We want to wish you a Merry Christmas full of joy and happiness.
In Spanish we say "Feliz Navidad": How do you say Merry Christmas in your country?
Christmas in Argentina is a time of family and friends. The Nativity scene is set up in the house. The tree is decorated with candles lights and ornaments. All the presents are placed under the tree and await the morning of Christmas.
On the 24th much like other traditional Hispanic families, everyone waits until late at night to eat and the presents are opened at midnight.
On Christmas Eve, family and friends gather to share a dinner feast that usually includes great celebrating.
How do you celebrate Christmas in your country?

Warm Regards,
Colegio Armenio Students
