Today, December 16th is the beginning of the 9 days of Las Posadas - a centuries old tradition in Mexico and in many towns and villages in New Mexico in which the search for "a room in the inn" is re-enacted every night until Christmas. Children and their parents wander through their neighborhood visiting home after home until finally they are welcomed in for delicious holiday treats and singing and sometimes breaking of a pinata.

"Apple and Green Chile Empanadas" to celebrate both the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec. 12th) and Lucia Day (Dec. 13th)!
I am not from Mexico nor Catholic, and there is no Scandinavian blood in my recent ancestry, but I always celebrate December 12th and 13th - and quite often by blending the two cultural traditions that have so completely influenced my art, craft, heart and Winter Holiday celebrations.
