Live– from New York City:
Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday time. Many thanks to those who emailed, mailed or texted their best wishes. You rock! I had a lovely Christmas with many hearty gatherings, lovely people, fantastic dancing and yummy food. Plus there were a few million tourists coming over for the festivities making this a very interesting time to walk around NYC. Now, I am getting ready to welcome 2008– can’t wait!!
Many of us celebrate the holidays in a different way, I thought of sharing with you a bit about the Puerto Rican way 🙂
As a Puerto Rican, I observe four dates during the holiday season which for us ends in January— December 24: Nochebuena (Christmas Eve), December 25: Navidades (Christmas), December 31st: Despedida de Año o Año Viejo (New Year’s Eve), and January 6, Dia de Reyes (Three Kings Day). More here, here, and here (in Spanish).
However you celebrate, I hope you have a beautiful time welcoming 2008 🙂
