Christmas in Guatemala

By: Madi P.

~ Christmas in Guatemala requires the Nativity. The Nativity has clay houses, shepherds, sheep, roads, greenery and much more.

~ December 7th, Guatemalans prepare a fire with leaves, sticks, and useless articles to burn the devil

~ It is the tradition of the Guatemalan people to go to church on Christmas Eve and then visit family and friends

~ Everyone waits until midnight to light hundreds of fireworks to celebrate the birth of Jesus. A prayer is said around the tree and soon after presents can be opened
