Whether you grew up with Noche Buena ending in La Misa del Gallo (the only reason your fam cares how you look), or ending in a food coma, this is a new year.

Here’s the opportunity: whether you’re with your family or in your home church, we’re not wearing a prim and proper dress this year. We’re donating our money to Planned Parenthood, putting on a political tee, blazer and walk into that sala ready to smash the patriarchy.
