CHRISTMAS IN ARGENTINA

Christmas Tree in Argentina

Why is cotton used to decorate Christmas trees in Argentina?

Answer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In some homes, evergreen trees are decorated with cotton to make them look like the snow found on the trees in the forests of the Northern Hemisphere.

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.

Three Wisemen

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.

Snowman Waving From the Top of The World My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some hidden part in all of us that screams out,
(I BELIEVE IN MORE THAN WHAT I SEE AROUND ME.)
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.

The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.

The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
As we eagerly await the happy Yuletide.

Enhance your Christmas, with Christmas poems and stories highlighted with your favorite Christmas carols. Christmas traditions are fast becoming a family way of life.
Poems are a simple way of inspiring others to join in on the Christmas traditions that love and poems bring to this Christmas holiday.

We'll be thinking of you and yours on Christmas day
So I guess there's just one more thing to say,
May God bless you, your lifetime through,
Merry Christmas and a real Happy New Year.
