CHRISTMAS IN NICARAGUA
Christmas begins officially on December 6 in Nicaragua, but actual activities begin on December 16 with the performance
of the lodging difficulties of Mary and Joseph. The home where lodging is found, supplies wine and food. Every home
contains a manger scene. From December 16 until Christmas Eve Mass, prayer is held each evening in the home, followed
by refreshments and the singing of carols. After Christmas Eve Mass, the Christmas dinner is consumed with only the
adults in attendance. Christmas cards are exchanged which are white and plain.
Christmas Day is celebrated with much fun and eating, fireworks and dancing. The main streets of the town and cities
are decorated and have loud-speakers broadcasting Christmas carols.
