In Mexico, Christmas is not just a single day, but a whole season of Christmas-related celebrations. Today, the Christmas traditions in Mexico are a blend of indigenous culture, Spanish heritage, and many influences. On Nochebuena (Christmas Eve), it is tradition for Mexican families to attend midnight mass before returning home to a late-night feast that includes foods like bacalao, ham, turkey, tamales, and mole, with ponche to drink and lots of music! Gifts are not usually given at this time, but this is changing with increasing cultural influence from the USA. Santa Claus has started coming to Mexico!
Nochebuena is journey through some of Mexico’s favorite Christmas traditions, though many of these customs and their celebration vary from region to region. Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles & Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar are thrilled to invite you to become part of this unforgettable Mexican Christmas Spectacular!
