A Honduras Christmas

Merry Christmas Honduras style!

Christmas is perhaps the biggest celebration of the year for Hondurans. It is filled with religious meaning, as the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ is at heart of it. Christmas is celebrated at the stroke of midnight on the night of the 24th of December (as opposed to the 25th in other countries).They prepare parties for their families, friends and have several traditional foods like pork, tamales, beer and aguardiente. They usually have a dinner with the family. People may attend Mass or Church on Christmas Eve. Then, they drop by the homes of their friends and neighbors to drink, eat and dance

Good job Chris. Video was a good addition. I would have appreciated some more details about the food and explanations about what each dish was. (ex. What is agua ardiente?)
