Mexico – Christmas traditions & customs
|Several weeks before Christmas, elaborately decorated market stalls or puestos are set up in the plazas of every town and city. Some people travel for days from remote areas to get to these markets. The puestos offer crafts of every conceivable kind, foods such as cheese, bananas, nuts, and cookies, and flowers such as orchids and poinsettias. The poinsettia is native to Mexico and is believed to have first been used in connection with Christmas in the 17th century.|
Tamales are a traditional Mexican food made for celebrating Christmas.
We have Maseca Flour, Chiles, Green Chile Sauce and Corn Husks ready to be turned into delicious Tamales. The steamed corn husks add a really unique dimension to a meal – just like unwrapping a present at Christmas!
Nice just to take the time to relax, and perhaps make a new family tradition with everyone helping out to make these.
Alternatively, we have Hormel Tamales, Hot and Spicy Beef, in Chili Sauce (Preservative Free).

We have a new Mezcal in store! Multi Award Winning Scorpion Mezcal. Not for the faint hearted… And, yes – it has been tried and tested in our home.
Thank you everyone for your patronage this past year – and we would like to pass on to you all our very warm best wishes for you and your families over the Christmas and New Year period.
