Transcript of Christmas in Argentina

Christmas in Argentina By Olivia Digirolamo, Madi Wilden
and Leah La Christmas Decoraions Songs- Feliz Navidad! 12 Days of Christmas Noche De Paz (silent night) A Brief History Christmas trees Flag ornaments Christmas Ornaments Tradition 1 Tradition 3 Tradition 2 Traditions- People go as families to church on the
morning of the 25th, then go back home
together. This demonstrates their faith and
brings them closer to their families. Its
always part of Christmas in Argentina. After a family dinner, children open presents under the Christmas tree and the adults have a toast at midnight and the children go outside and watch the fireworks. This is a celebration of Falize Navidad. Children write letters to Santa instead of El Nino Dios which is much more common around Latin American countries. Over all Christmas in Argentina is very similar to America. They celebrate the same way with similar decorations. They decorate with Christmas ornaments just as we do in the US. In Argentina they decorate the tree with ornaments
decorated with the flag of Argentina. Christmas is celebrated very similarly in Argentina and they share American traditions. The original main idea is to celebrate the birth of Jesus. They have many of the same traditions and beliefs as America. They mostly identify themselves as Roman Catholics. They go to church and eat Christmas cookies just as we do. One unique trait is watching fireworks at midnight on Christmas eve. They say Falize Navidad, but other then that we are really not much different. Feliz Navidad

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Five gold rings
Four colly birds

Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree. Sólo velan en la oscuridad
Los pastores que en el campo están
Y la estrella de Belén,
Y la estrella de Belén.

Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor.
Sobre el santo niño Jesús
Una estrella esparce su luz,
Brilla sobre el Rey,
Brilla sobre el Rey.

Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor;
Fieles velando allí en Belén
Los pastores, la madre también,
Y la estrella de paz,
Y la estrella de paz.
