At the time I still believed in Santa Claus and didn't really think of Christmas as the birth of Jesus. My family was really religious and we were Catholic, every Christmas we would go to church. The day came for Christmas eve and I woke up in a good mood, getting ready to eat tamales and pozole, Christmas punch. My grandma really knew how to cook a good dinner, I went to the market, with my mom to buy all the supplies to make the food and bought some last minute Christmas presents. It was around 5 o'clock and I was all changed up in my Christmas outfit, my family always took a family picture on Christmas Eve.
But contrary to that, there are some reasons why Christmas is my favorite holiday overall. The most cherishable part about Christmas is not the gifts, but being with family.
