Costa Rican Tamales for Christmas

I'm taking a short break from blogging about our last trip to share this video we stumbled across. Many people are aware that tamales are a Christmas tradition in Mexico, but did you know they are also a tradition in Costa Rica? This video takes you into a Costa Rican home as they prepare their Christmas tamales. It's quite interesting to watch.

The video was made by Kimberly Beck, an American who moved with her husband to the Caribbean side of Costa Rica on a farm they manage themselves. Her blog, 10 Degrees Above, has great information on living in Costa Rica, and I've found it useful to read through many of her posts in preparation for our eventual move. The blog is also full of gorgeous pictures from Costa Rica as well. Be sure to check out their Photography Workshops in Costa Rica and their online store featuring cool products with their photographic images on them.

I want to take this time to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas! I hope you will be spending it with those you love. Is anyone going somewhere special? Leave a comment below to let us know where, and with whom, you'll be spending your Christmas this year!

Be sure to request your free DVD!
