Christmas in Mexico

    Last night was "Noche Buena" here in Mexico. Generally families go to a late mass at church and then gather to exchange gifts and celebrate. Our youngest child, Naomi went to Oliver's mother's house (Oliver is Naomi's boyfriend) and attended his family's celebration that started after 10pm and went on through the night. Apparently there was a lot of drinking and fireworks! Mexico loves fireworks.
  All the children in my classes celebrate Noche Buena. They do believe in Santa Clause but here he doesn't bring the gifts, or at least that is how it was explained to me.

  Mike and I went out to dinner last night and this morning we have some Christmas donuts. It's not exactly cold here in Mazatlán, in fact we had to sleep with the air conditioning on last night, so it doesn't feel like Christmas... I guess I'm still a New Yorker at heart-Christmas is supposed to be cold and maybe snowy!  The fireworks did go on and on last night though.  I do hope you all have had a Happy Christmas!!

Also Mike and Abigail Books is running a kickstarter for his new sketchbook/art book- Get this one on pre-order while you can!  The last book in this series won a Bookfest Award for non-fiction art books.
