From Julia Alvarez's tale of how Santiclo delivered a dear uncle from political oppression to Sandra Cisneros's poignant memories of her late father's holiday dinners, to Piri Thomas's account of "a fine Christmas, indeed" during the Depression -- Las Christmas presents true stories from writers of many traditions and vividly captures the pride and pain, joy and heartbreak that so often accompany the holidays in the Americas.
Richly illustrated and including traditional songs, poems, and recipes, this is an enduring treasury of Latino writing to read and share again and again.
