Feliz Nochebuena Feliz Navidad 10 Jan. 2006
By Margarita. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved this book, the pictures, and the recipes. The text and pictures really helped me to understand how Christmas is celebrated in a culture which is different from mine, and presented a wonderful alternative to the "white christmas" prototype which is so prevalent in the United States today. The Christmas holiday time is a time that can be filled with wonder, and reading Sra. Presilla's soothing description of the holiday's of her childhood allowed me to travel to that world and to get in touch with a holiday time filled with warmth, good food, and family. I made the Seville Oranges marinade for out turkey, and everyone loved the way my kitchen smelled and the taste of the turkey. My children, ages 11 and 14, are learning Spanish in school so this was a very nice book for us to read as a family over the holiday and promoted some good discussion about the history of Cuba. We also learned some spanish vocabulary. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in exploring new traditions for celebrating winter holidays.
