Holiday memories cherished are memories dear to us for our lifetimes and if fortunate, we pass these on as traditions for our future generations. These simple well read cultural pasts can integrate with our own family customs or begin anew for us. It is seldom we are invited to share so intimately with a group of gifted individuals.

Loved these simple writings about special memories of the Christmas of different Latinamerican authors. Simple enough to share with our children during Christmas season so they can have a bite to our typical celebrations and learn more about our roots. Christmas is a season of devotion, parties, and just special realities that mix together bringing about our unique typical lives. Recipes, songs, poems our typical way. It is plainly: typical. Excellent.

I was hoping, when I ordered this book, I could recommend it to my book-club but I was totally disappointed. I had wanted to educate my fellow book club members about Christmas in Puerto Rico when I was growing up. The Christmas my family and I remember with nostalgia. It was however, something else. It is a recollection of different authors about growing up in some Spanish-speaking country. Stories which sometimes, did not have hardly anything to do with Christmas, as I remember it. I am not saying the writing was not good. I am saying that it simply it did not deliver what I expected. It was my mistake! I am not recommending the book because it will not do what I want!

Such a fun read, even the sad stories since they, too, are part of our shared history. Can't wait to make the pernil. Helped me understand the crazy notion of "asalto" that I grew up with but had no idea was cultural in nature; I just thought my Dad was nuts. As a second generation "born here" there was so much I had an inkling about but this book taught about our history and traditions in the best way possible - through food and music, tears and laughter.

Las Christmas is a collection of stories celebrating Latino families and the celebrations around Christ's birth. Although many of the stories are full of warmth and happiness, (and recipes), there are a few with sadness and the poignant remembrances of poverty. This book is a must for Spanish teachers, like me, who want to try to capture the true "flavor" of La Navidad.

I LOVEEE this book, must read for all Latinos but also for other cultures. I am reading this for one of my college classes and I've been passing it along ever since and everyone loves it.
