Mexican Santa???

I guess some might call it a paradox. A Mexican Santa? What's up with that I hear you ask? Well, the truth is that I had this brainwave idea that Epcot Center weren't the only ones who could take advantage of a great idea. So we came up with the idea of an event called the "Colors of Christmas."

It was essentially an event where we had the cuisine, culture, and costumes of a number of different nations. People walked around in the hundreds sampling food, asking questions and examining different cultural artifacts. We also had a couple of drama skits highlighting the birth of Jesus as viewed from the perspective of the shepherds, the Angels and some rather intellectual Scientists. It was an amazing and well attended event and a local Hispanic radio station covered the event live. Under my Poncho is a full Santa Claus outfit. The heat was almost unbearable but the success of the day made it all worth while. So how come your'e just showing us photos of an event that happened last Christmas? Truth to tell, I only just downloaded a bunch of photos from my digital camera onto my computer and so I figured I might as well do something with them. That means you'll be seeing a few more photos that I discovered on my camera that I thought would be fun to share with you. Enjoy!
