Christmas in the Dominican Republic by Breawna

The christmas Season

Along with the many Hispanic traditions, the Dominican Republic has many unique traditions. The Christmas season begins at the end of October and ends on New Years Day. In the weeks before Christmas day people will exchange small gifts called Angelitos.

Celebrations

Musicians are called pericos pipiaos will sing and play the merengue. Carolers do what is called Aquinaldos where they travel fleets from house to house and are expected to come inside for an informal party. This is also the time of renewal; families clean their houses, throw out old things, and give their houses a new coat of paint.

Es Noel, es Noel Suena el cascabel De un venado muy veloz Que tiene Santa Claus Corre ya, juega ya

Hoy es Navidad Los juguetes hay Que dar por Toda la ciudad Qué bonito es, Es correr con rapidez

Ir con Santa Claus y escuchar su voz Suena el cascabel Quiero ir con él Con mis amiguito

Y cantar feliz noel!!!!
