These unwritten Latino rules cannot be ignored during the holidays.
Wrapping paper is sacred.
When unwrapping a gift, you are to do it delicately so that the wrapping paper can be used again and again and again.
You have to have a comeback every time you’re asked this…
Because all Latinos know that holiday season coincides with “y tu novio” season. So you better come prepared.
¡Adiós a las dietas!
The diet goes out the window.
Watch out for choking hazards.
Seriously, you never know when you might bite into a baby Jesus.
You get what you get and you don’t get upset.
Really, there’s no point in writing a Christmas wish list because you’re probably getting something that’s been re-gifted.
Speaking of… exchanges and returns are out of the question.
It’s rude to return or exchange regalos, that’s why you simply regift the ones you don’t like. So much more thoughtful.
There’s only one thing on the menu.
And guess what? No one is complaining.
Always bring cash.
Christmas dinner is a 7-hour commitment.
Better bring your jammies.
