During the Holidays you may have a tree and maybe some flowers. This tradition does not vary much from the Southern American tradition of flowers a tree and more flowers.

Some traditional flowers include the poinsettia which originated in Central America and parts of South America.
but some believe that baby Jesus brings them their presents.

In South America they do presents just the same way as America does with Santa coming and giving them new presents
Yes, there is a Santa in South America, and in Chile, he is called Veijo Pascuero. He resembles the American Santa Claus a lot and he is driven by reindeer. Although, he comes in the house by climbing in the window. He doesn't come through the chimney because most houses don't have one due to warm weather.
In Chile they put lights and balloons up. They also
decorate their Christmas trees with clay figures called
'pesebre'.
In Argentina they decorate their homes with lights and wreaths of green, gold, red and white flowers. They also hand red and white garlands are hung on the doors of houses.
