Noche Buena Plans

Christmas season is usually associated with children. Images of happy kids lining up to whisper their Christmas wishes in Santa's ear, and kids waking up on a Christmas morning to find gifts lining up under the Christmas tree.

In my family, we always have a get-together dinner with cousins, aunts and uncles. We send SMS and emails to those who happen to be far away and unable to come home for the holidays. Then we'd gather round the dinner table for the Noche Buena (Midnight Dinner) to welcome the birth of Christ with a celebratory mood.

This Christmas I will be buying some sweet red wine and queso de bola (ball of cheese). My sis and mom will take care of the salad, spaghetti and the fruits. My uncle will take care of the lechon manok (roasted chicken) and the liquor for the adults and the softdrinks for the kids.

But take care not to over-eat and over-indulge in liquor. After the holidays you will have to deal with the extra calories you have consumed.
