Navidad en Colombia

     Colombian Christmas unofficially begins on December 7th with dia de las velitas or day of the candles  Christmas in Colombia is deeply rooted in Catholic tradition like most of the Hispanic culture countries so starting December 16th everyone gathers with family and prays the "La Novena de Aguinaldos" which is a special occasion to remember the birth of baby Jesus. Colombia celebrates Christmas a lot like us from decorating to telling stories about Santa, they go caroling and hang stockings and then sit down and exchange presents. The people also decorate outside with lights. Colombian cities are covered with lights.

Good work Alex. A few more details such as types of foods eaten at Christmas time. A picture of a Colombian city at Christmas time would also have been a good idea.
