Diego

Diego wakes up as a car horn blares outside the apartment building. His two brothers, Roberto and Luis, sleep on. The three boys share a bedroom in their little home in Iztacalco, a part of Mexico City. Diego and his family moved here a few months ago, when Diego’s father got a job at a furniture factory.

Las Posadas

Most people in Mexico are Roman Catholic, and they celebrate Christmas in a big way. The celebrations begin nine days before December 25 with Las Posadas (the inns). Children dress up as Mary, Joseph, the Wise Men, and shepherds and go from home to home seeking shelter.

King’s Day

Kids in Mexico don’t open their presents on Christmas Day. Instead they open them on King’s Day in January. This reminds them of the Three Kings giving gifts to Jesus. They’ll eat a special “King’s Cake” on that day. King’s Day officially ends the Christmas season in Mexico.
