Transcript of La Navidad

By: Anna Hayes La Navidad

December 25 Origin Compare The origin of Christmas is when baby Jesus
was born to Mary and Joseph in the inn. Most of them also focus on the three kings who brought the gifts to baby Jesus. Many celebrate this holiday by having people dress up as Mary and Joseph and they reenact the night baby Jesus was born.

There are also many types of food like "Turkey with truffles". Their truffles are mushroom-like and they are found underground.

For a special desert they serve caramel custard.
•1 cup and 1/2 cup sugar
•6 large eggs
•1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
•2 13 oz cans evaporated milk
•1 teaspoon vanilla
WHY??? Fun Facts Unlike Christmas in America where
we celebrate Santa Claus, they believe
that the Three Kings bring them gifts
instead of Santa. This is caramel custard
or "flan." The celebration first
took place on
December 25th Baby Jesus is
being honored. There is no typical dress
and the decorations are
poinsettias, which are
their Christmas flower and also many other fun decorations. It is important because it is one of
the biggest religious holidays to hispanics. The nativity scene plays a big role in their Christmas traditions and celebrations. Religious reasons are still primarily the focus they celebrate baby Jesus' birth and instead of Santa they believe the three kings from Jesus' birth bring them gifts. Unlike America where it primarily about gifts in Spanish countries it is still religiously reserved and more about family than presents. This holiday is pretty much celebrated everywhere and also in America.
Only America has become more focused on Santa and gifts than the real reason which is Jesus' birth. Jesus' birth is the main reason still in Hispanic countries While in America Christmas celebration ends on Christmas day, in Spanish countries it continues until January 6th, which is three Kings Day. Instead of anticipating Santa on Christmas they anticipate the Three Kings coming on Three Kings Day. Since Santa is not as important in Spanish countries, some countries even tell their children if they're bad Santa Claus will come and take them away. Countries where La Navidad is celebrated Instead of Santa bringing them gifts the Three Kings do on January 6th, Three Kings Day. <---- Flan <---- Three Kings They also don't receive a lot of presents like many do in America.
