The laughter of the family fills the air. The heat of the stove and oven making the home cozy and warm. The smell of tamales in many Mexican homes. Children running around and causing trouble for the older ones. Presents under the tree and maybe mistletoe hanging from the top. These are many things that people associate with Christmas and their memories with this holiday.

Christmas is a very important holiday to many; it might be the day that the family gets together after a long time or the time everyone is available for get-togethers.
