Feliz Navidad & Merry Christmas! I absolutely love this day…maybe I should give you an insight about how we Colombian people celebrate it! First we start with a tradition called Novela–Its a nine day gathering with family and friends, we sing Villancicos ( Christmas Carols in Spanish) and we eat traditional Colombian pastries and such. On Christmas Eve, we usually have a pretty big dinner, we dance latin music…a collection of Salsa, Merengue, Vallenato & maybe some Bachata. Whew…the dancing is a pretty big deal..there are steps to each one of these types of music. ( I think I should eventually explain this part further!). On the 24th, we stay up until 12am…Christmas time! We open up presents then and usually dance some more! I really really enjoy the time with my friends and my family. So, however you celebrate, I wish to you an awesome day! I leave you with a photo of Miles! Merry Christmas!

Super excited about being part of this project founded by the Wellness council of South Carolina. Its goal is got reach to kids in the community and teach them subjects related to developing creativity & learning about art. I am so honored to be part of this project and had a blast on our first class with the kids from Whittenmore Park Middle School!
Huge thanks to Pablo ( my brother and assistant for taking these photos!)
