This week I am lucky to have Margarita from Downshifting Pro sharing her stories about their family’s bi-cultural traditions mixing Christmas in Canada and Colombia. With her Colombian heritage and her husband’s Canadian roots, they have come together to make new traditions for their family. It’s so interesting to see the similarities and differences between Christmas in the two cultures and see how they incorporate these traditions in their holiday celebrations. I hope you’ll enjoy this as much as I do and thanks Margarita for sharing in our Holiday Celebrations Around the World Series!
