At the midnight hour on December 24th, many people in Ecuador pause during their late-night meal and raise a toast to Baby Jesus, then they exchange greetings with everyone in the room. Then they return to their seats and resume their meal!
The rains continue, and for that we are grateful here on the western side of Ecuador. For holiday cuisine, the Ecuadorian Trogons and Whooping Motmots might dine on festive red tomatoes. They’re quite thoughtful neighbors, as they leave plenty for the resident artist!
What’s on your holiday menu?
