Experiencing the culture and celebrations of Guatemala during the Christmas season is both fascinating and intriguing. As a resident in Guatemala with ties to the community, I have a unique opportunity to participate in and observe Guatemalan Christmas traditions.

"I really enjoyed this book and with the easy to use instructions I made traditional Guatemalan buñuelos and my family loved them. I am going to make them for Christmas Eve and start a new family tradition!."

"After someone recommended it to me, I decided to get Christmas in Guatemala 101 and it turned out to be really good. It talks about traditions such as "posadas" and tamales. There is also some info about why Guatemalans celebrate Christmas the way they do it.
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.
This would be great for any family or individual traveler that is planning on visiting Guatemala during the holidays.."

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.
