Dia de los reyes – Day of the kings


For many Mexican families, gifts and celebration are centered around Day of the Kings on January 6, rather than Santa and December 25. Catering to the Dia de los reyes, Gallerias Vallarta shifts from pictures with Santa to pictures with the three kings (beautifully outfitted in opulent robes of ancient times) – none of whom are white guys, by the way. http://www.darlenejonesauthor.com   Original link

TOUCH by Claire North – a writer’s novel


Touch by Claire North  (2015) 426 pages (paperback) I started reading this intriguing science fantasy novel in October and finished it Christmas Day, 2018. It would take a normal reader a couple of days but I had my own nonsense to write. Should be compulsory reading for writers.

Posada – Christmas party Mexican style


Tonight (Dec. 19) we were honored to be invited to the neighbors’ Posada – a traditional Mexican party held at Christmas. We enjoyed Atole (a hot corn and chocolate drink) and ate tamales and of course had a piñata. See below for more information about Posadas.   How did posadas originate?Posadas in Mexico began as a way for the Spaniards to teach native people about Christmas. During the nine days leading up to Christmas Day, masses would include representations of Mary and Joseph. Following mass was a party where people were blindfolded before hitting a piñata with a stick, a representation of faith defeating temptation with the help of virtue. The fruits and sweets that poured out of the ...

Despite the internet’s reputation for trolls, I’ve found that I interact with a brilliant collection of people on a daily basis. Each offers a gift whether it’s art, knowledge, a story, or just a well-timed joke. I wanted a way to thank them for inspiring me that was less impermanent than a typed ‘thank you’. This is a personal award that I bestow on people who I feel are excellent examples of d...
