Welcome to this holiday posting which is my "Holiday Greeting Card" to each and every one of you who read and follow this blog. The following are some of my favorite holiday images which I have collected over the years living in Mexico and other Latin American countries.

There is a real mix here and I hope you enjoy. With my sincere thanks for joining me this year and wishing you Feliz Navidad (Merry Christmas) and Feliz Ano Nuevo (Happy New Year).
