But my favorite part is the one where they give you recipes about how to cook Traditional Guatemalan tamales. It even comes with some educational and fun activities for kids.

    While Benjamin's book has plenty of information on posadas, decorations and other traditions around here, I think the best part is the recipes. There are TONS of Christmas recipes for Guatemalan food, plus he's including a bonus full of tamale recipes. Forty of them, to be exact...They're all fairly easy to make at home, too, so you can enjoy a bit of Guatemalan tradition, too.

    Of course, for the not-so-food minded, you will read about all the traditions around here, like the burning of the Devil, the feast of the Virgin and plenty of other ones I didn't even know much about before this. There is also a whole section on activities and crafts for kids with a Guatemalan theme. Definitely worth a read if you are interested in Guatemalan traditions.
