Well we're a week before december (:D yupi!), and in my comunity, well all over the state of Veracruz, we celebrate something called "la rama" (the branch). This tradition consist of decorating a branch from a pine or a normal tree with x-mas ornaments and singing traditional carols in every neighbourhood house with the purpose of obtainig treats or money from the house owner. This tradition starts on December 16th lasts until the night before of 24th. It is a very nice tradition becuse it gathers friends and family together to go out and sing together.

Why do I mention it?..well at high school we have a competition about this carols of the "rama" I've been practicing since..?mmm:\?..a while ago^_^', and also because I would like to know if ther is something that only your comunity celebrate or..I don't know something you do during december, apart of x-mas and new year celebrations...
