Noche Buena

I together with my family celebrated Noche Buena at my Aunt's house. Noche Buena, often translated as "Good Night", is a Spanish word referring to the night of Christmas Eve. The evening consists of a traditional dinner with family. After we ate our dinner we played games like trip to jerusalem (using bottle & straw), hephep horay, pen & bottle game, guess that song game,videoke challenge, and a lot more...We really had fun, and prices were given to the winners sponsored by my aunts and uncles :)...We also had our exchanging of gifts which was the most awaited part of the evening :)

Dinner with family...

In our family, we had a tradition of exchanging of Christmas Cards and gifts. First, we form a big circle and one person must be in the center. Then while turning around we will sing the traditional song - I love my manita/manito - yes or no... I love my manita/manito - yes or no ... I love my manita/manito - yes or no... i love my manita/manito but i wont tell you... :)
