A Venezuelan Christmas

By Marissa and Sammy


T’was the night before Christmas, as the family prepared,

“For the Noche Buena celebration!” Jose proudly declared.


“Mass will be starting at 12 o’clock sharp!

We must hurry up it’s already dark!”

Every morning they have met at the church together,

missing no day since the 16th of December.

The family would gather after all at one house,

leaving no room for even a mouse.


At home they serve “hallacasfor all who wish to come,

there’s no food to be left, not even a crumb.

Jose likes pan de jamon, and dulce de lechoza, his favorite dish of brown sugar and papaya.


In the house there stands a Christmas tree,

but most important of all is the nativity scene.

This nacimiento has great meaning to them,

as it depicts the manger in Bethlehem.


After misade gallo, ormidnight mass,

it is Jesus who brings gifts in the morning at last.
