Peru, Nicaragua, and even us have Santa. He's the same old, jolly, belt wearing, present giving fat man.Santa In Peru rides a motorcycle.
Day of Christmas
We all open presents and eat with our families on Christmas right? Well so do people in Peru and Nicaragua.
Food for Christmas
Every Christmas we eat all sorts of food protein, vegies and fruit, grain, and junk food. At least my family does. For Christmas Peru eats Christmas food like us. For Nicaragua they eat anything they can afford.
We have traditions and they are what make us special. In Peru they have a tradition of saying "Nochebuena" to people on the streets going home. In Nicaragua they stay in town and sing for santa to have a good flight home.
That is what we have researched.
