Celebrating Christmas in Mexico? Wondering what to expect? Well, aside from the sub-tropical to tropical climates making it a bit difficult to find a pine tree, Christmas in Mexico is celebrated in much the same fashion as their neighbors to the north, with some fun exceptions.

While Christmas elsewhere signifies the beginning of caroling, down in Mexico, they don’t take the notion of singing lightly. Songs can be heard at any and all of the Mexican Christmas celebrations, and all are encouraged to join-in. Midnight Mass, for instance, is referred to as la Misa del Gallo, or “the rooster’s mass,” as all in attendance sing lullabies to baby Jesus.
