ARGENTINIAN CHRISTMAS

CHRISTMAS IN ARGENTINA IS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THE UNITED STATES
CHRISTMAS. INSTEAD OF HANGING SOCKS AROUND THE FIREPLACE THE
WHOLE FAMILY BRINGS DOWN THEIR SHOES AND THE PRESENTS ARE PLACED
AROUND THEM. I GUESS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT WE DO NOT USE SOCKS
IS THAT WE BASICALLY DON'T HAVE FIREPLACES IN USE AT CHRISTMAS
BECAUSE IT IS IN THE SUMMERTIME AND TOO WARM FOR THEM.
