Houses are decorated in red and white garlands and Father Christmases boots are put on the doorstep.
The Christmas tree is decorated with colored lights, ornaments and Father Christmas is placed on top.
In Buenos Aires especially, the scent of orange blossoms, jasmine, and honeysuckle is in the air, and lots of beautifully-colored flowers are everywhere at Christmas time.
In Argentina during the Christmas season, people light up the night sky, like the angels lit up the sky over Bethlehem when they announced on that first Christmas that Jesus Christ had come to Earth. A beautiful tradition of the light "globos." The Argentine people light paper balloon lanterns called "globos" from within and then set them free to float up into the sky. They also set off fireworks, especially on Christmas Eve.
It is warm enough in Argentina to have Christmas dinner outside in the garden. For Christmas dinner they have pig or a roast peacock and a large variety of side dishes.
On January 5th, children in Argentina place their shoes underneath the Christmas tree or beside their beds. They leave hay and water outside the house for the horses of the three kings (Magi), who will who bring them their gifts on their way to the Christ Child in Bethlehem.
15 days till Christmas!
