Happy December, everyone!

Clearly, I’m running behind with my Catching Up with Me November 2013 post, but, better late than never!

The Holidays can be difficult for me since I am so far away from my family, my friends and many Colombian traditions that I miss.

Although December 7th is not a holiday in the United States, it is a big day in Colombia. It is the first day of Christmas for a lot of Colombians, also known as El Día de las Velitas (The Day of the Candles).

If you like this page, you can say thanks by sharing it :-)
