    en mi familia la Navidad es celebrada por ir a la iglesia la víspera de Navidad. Luego que todos lleguemos a casa y ver una película de Navidad. el día de Navidad los niños se despiertan primero e ir abajo a mirar a los presentes. Nosotros los dividimos en montones para cada persona. luego nos vamos al piso de arriba y nos vamos a despertar a nuestros padres para que podamos abrir los regalos. cuando finalmente despierten tenemos desayuno y luego llegar a la apertura de los regalos! Espero que esto era interesante oír hablar! adiós!

    Tradition is great. What about the tradition of giving gifts?

    Hey, this tradition is also relevant, it just doesn’t make sense to talk about it everywhere. If you are interested, then personally I always choose chocolate for gifts to my loved ones. This is an ideal option, as it does not require high costs and it cheers up absolutely everyone. This tradition has been in our family for a long time.
