DECORS AT HOME
It isn’t truly Christmas without them!
First of all, the tree.
Picking out the best one to give your home a warm environment is vital for these days. It can be natural or artificial, the meaning of having one is spending fun time with the family by decorating it and dressing it up. Any kind of baubles, lights or garlands are welcome!
On the other hand, before the big day, you can also find a special spot for that mistletoe that has been saved up for years. Decorating your house, inside and outside, is an exceptional way to spend time on Christmas with your loved ones. Tell everyone to bring along a unique ornament and transform your home into the perfect holiday getaway for the whole family.
A great way to expand the Christmas joy is decorating your spaces with the magic, colors and essences that only Ecuadorian roses have.
BEST WISHES CARDS
By e-mail or hand to hand they are still a trend on American’s Christmas traditions. Sending cards with good wishes to your relatives and old friends is a great way to reconnect and make them feel special. It is a warm symbol of love in this cold time of the year.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, "CHEESE"

The shiniest and most colorful time of the year is near, so why don’t take advantage of it. Get together with your family and friends and find the perfect moment to enjoy this fun tradition. You can also take some pictures and get to know the real show Christmas night has to offer you.
GET READY, DINNER IS HERE!
The best part of Christmas eve is food. Exquisite dishes, appetizers, and desserts are prepared to spoil the whole family and lead to the perfect moment to express, in a few words, why you’re thankful for.
Although everyone’s got their own family traditions on Christmas, especially in the way of what they're eating that day, here we brought you an idea that will be the topping for the perfect night or afternoon: chocolate drinks!
To make these beverages unforgettable, the best ingredient is Hoja Verde Chocolate.
The gift exchange tradition goes back to when the Three Wise Men brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the baby Jesus for his goodwill.
Nowadays, on Christmas day, every member of the family brings along gifts to exchange them just because of the joy of giving. This action is considered as the perfect way of making others feel loved and special. Don´t forget the gold rule: Do what you want them to do for you.
