Every country celebrates Christmas in its own way. However, in Mexico buildings, plazas, parks and main squares are decorated with colorful lights and ornaments. In houses, Nacimientos (Nativity scenes) are set, piñatas are hanged from the roof awaiting to be wacked and shattered by children, and delicious aromas flourish from the kitchens, making everyone remember the joys of the year.
