Three Chilean Christmas Tradition Facts

Picture 1: This is Chile's version of Santa Claus. The only way that he is different from ours is that he is skinnier because the chimney's in Chile are smaller than ours.
Picture 2: The weather in Chile during Christmas is a lot warmer than it is here. Chilean people go rock-climbing, surfing, or just hang out on the beach during their vacation.
Picture 3: Cola de mono, or monkey's tail, is a traditional drink that can be served without alcohol for the children or wit for the adults.
Another thing is that they also do a nativity scene and while they do this, they sing bible passages throughout the activity.
