Dominican Republic

By: Jarumi, Peyton and Faith

What better way to spend the holiday then to spend it here in Dominican Republic!!!

There are many traditions here in the D.R. Families uniting on Noche Buena. Cooking their famous Sancocho. Giving there angelitos ( the D.R's way of saying secret santa). Here we also decorate our trees with El Nacimiento.

How the people of Dominican Republic Celebrate!

Dominicans start to celebrate Christmas in the beginning of December and end the celebration on January 6, with the arrival of the three kings.
