Christmas is really celebrated on Christmas Eve. Me and sis headed back to Managua to join the host family for the celebrations. Presents are opened at midnight and dinner is served later in the evenign (around 10pm). While waiting finger food is available to keep the munchies away while people set off fireworks. Everybody has a Nativity scene. This is the prettiest one I saw:
They also have this folklore that’s performed evry year for Christmas. The neighbors even held a version of this performance Click on the link below to see a video of the performance…sorry that it’s so dark but hey it’s 11:30 pm!
