Contacting Father Christmas the Mexican way
video

Children all over the world will have written to Father Christmas tonight in the hope of getting their heart's desires delivered whilst they sleep. The tradition in Mexico is usually for gifts to be delivered on the night of the 5th/6th January, which is when the Three Kings arrived to leave their gifts for the Christ Child, but this house resolutely follows the English custom and toys arrive tonight - even though I am actually the only English person around.

That said the compromise was that Christmas Dinner gets eaten tonight, which is a custom that I loath. On the other hand we do tend to eat before midnight, unlike everyone else and the bill of fare is pretty much 100% British: turkey, roast spuds, Christmas pud imported from England and beer from the same country. There is a limit to the amount of foreign crap that any white man can take when all is said and done. . .

This year is the first occasion that my eldest son has been old enough to glug a pint along with his dad, which has made Christmas rather a special one for me this time around.
