Help a friend out and get them an ugly Christmas sweater to rock to your holiday party.

There’s always that procrastinator who shows up to the ugly Xmas sweater party without an ugly Xmas sweater! Who does that? Now it doesn’t have to be anyone in your circle if you help them out and cop one of our ugly Xmas sweaters that are now on sale.

Guacardo is so bougie he almost never goes on sale… until now.

Fancy things in life like Chanel, Dior and Gucci never go on sale because they’re too bougie to lower their prices. Same goes for Guacardo… until now. The sassy avocado dressed in his Remember Me outfit is lowering his price to ensure every Guacardo lover gets him as a gift.

You can now remind someone she is meant to be a congresswoman at a lower price.

If you have a sobrina, a colleague, a bestie who you know is meant for greatness, you can tell her what you think of her without breaking the bank. Inspired by one of our favorite Latina, hoop-wearing Congresswomen, these earrings will put anyone in the spirit to achieve greatness.

If poderosa is more what you use to describe that goal-driven friend, this ID bracelet would make the perfect gift, and it’s also on sale.

Most of us grew up with the ID bracelets that were given to us with so much love by our family members. Now you can add another powerful bracelet to your best friend’s collection. This one has the word Poderosa scribed on the plate to remind her she can do anything. The bracelet is 14 karat gold plated brass and nickel and cadmium free — perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. It is delivered in this beautiful box and ready for gifting…or to keep for yourself.

This Cyber Monday sale also has you covered when it comes to gifts for the most important woman in your life.

Most of us never know what to give the woman who gave everything for us. This two-part necklace set is a sweet gift for the main woman in our life. This necklace is double-stacked.

The holidays aren’t always easy for someone who is newly single. Take advantage of our Cyber Monday sale and give this special message.

Mom used to tell us “Mejor sola que mal acompañada” and sometimes we need a reminder that we are better off alone than in bad company. You may need this reminder or this might be the perfect gift for a girlfriend who is going through a recent breakup. This will give her the reassurance she needs to let go of baggage and move on with her head high.

A Paragliding Santa From California Got Entangled In Power Lines

A Paragliding Santa From California Got Entangled In Power Lines

Ho ho… whoa.

It’s the holiday season and as we all know this compacted with the singularity of 2020, guarantees a winter full of the bizarre. Previous incidents have made Santas stuck in chimneys and elves thieving a sort of holiday norm. Just when we thought nothing could really shock us, a recent story out of Rio Linda, California is shaking up the holiday weirds.

On Sunday, the power lines of Rio Linda, California received a particular shock when a paraglider dressed as Santa Claus fell crashed right into them.

The Santa was spotted being stuck in the power lines for over an hour on Sunday before he was safely removed.

According to the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District, the Santa Clause was released from the power lines after being trapped for over an hour. CBS Sacramento reported that a woman by the name of Alisa Cumbra learned bout the incident after her son recorded the crash. Cumbra told CBS she didn’t know what to believe.

“I’m like, is he okay? Did he get electrocuted? What’s going on?” Cumbra explained.

Neighbors told outlets that they’ve heard the pilot in the skies in the area before. “We see him flying around all of the time. It’s like some kind of go-kart with a parachute on top of it,” a woman named Crystal Kennedy, who lives near the crash site explained.

“He did it. He went ahead and did it. He hit the power line,” a woman named Angela, who claimed to be the pilot’s friend told CBS.

According to friends of the flying Santa, the pilot just wanted to spread some holiday cheer.

“He was just flying over here to drop off some candy canes for the kids. And, that’s when he experienced engine problems,” Kennedy explained.

According to the fire department, there were no conductions from the lines occurring at the time. “The pilot had a mishap. He was actually out doing something, really good for the community, and in 2020 I think it’s something we all need,” Cpt. Chris Vestal said.

“We are happy to report #Santa is uninjured and will be ready for #Christmas next week, but perhaps with a new sleigh!” the fire department wrote.

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Christmas is a special time of year. Families have their traditions to mark the festive year and some of those traditions are rooted in culture. Here are some of the ways various countries in Latin America celebrate Christmas.

El Pase Del Niño Viajero – Ecuador

El Pase del Niño Viajero is a pageant that happens in Ecuador that lasts weeks. The parade is meant to represent the journey of Mary and Joseph. The parade highlights the religious importance of Christmas in Ecuador and is most common in the Andean region of the country.

The biggest and most important parade is in Cuenca, a deeply religious city. Citizens near the city have all day to see the parade as it starts in the early morning and runs through the late afternoon. This gives people a lot of time to make it to the city to witness the parade.

La Gritería – Nicaragua

La Gritería comes after La Purisma. La Purisma is celebrated at the end of November and is meant to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. La Gritería is celebrated in early December and involves literal yelling. Someone would shout “Que causa tanta alegria?” (“What causes so much happiness?”) People respond “La Concepción de María.” (“Mary’s Conception.”)

Las Posadas – Mexico

Mexican posadas are the most recognizable. Posadas take place in Mexico from Dec. 16-24, though this year they are most likely to be virtual. The posada begins with a procession in the neighborhood filled with people singing and sometimes led by two people dressed as Mary and Joseph.

Another part is the posada party. Before guests can enter, there is a song exchange with the people outside playing Joseph looking for shelter. The hosts sing the side of the innkeeper saying there is no room. Eventually, the guests are welcomed into the home to celebrate Christmas.

Aguinaldos – Colombia

Aguinaldos are a series of games played by people in Colombia leading up to Christmas. There are certain games that are common among people in Colombia. One is pajita en boca, which requires holding a straw in your mouth the entire time of a social event. Another is dar y no recibir, which is about getting people to take something you are giving to score a point.

El Quema Del Diablo – Guatemala

El quema del diablo is celebrated in early December and is a way of letting go of the previous year. People burn piñatas and effigies of the devil to let go of all negative feelings and moments from the previous year. If there was every to try a new tradition, this would be the year. Burn an effigy and banish 2020 to the past, where it belongs.
