Christmas in Other Lands

This is too funny not to use it.

Our adopted nephew is in Nicaragua for Christmas, visiting his real family.  I e'd him and asked:

Do you all go to midnight mass and then have a vast feast?
He wrote back:   Mass is usually early as most people here are trying to avoid alcohol-withdrawal shakes so they want to start the drinking early.

What are your favorites among the dishes?

Dinner will be turkey with a Nicaraguan, pork-based stuffing; it never goes into a turkey's cavity, but is always served on the side.

Do the maids do the cooking or the family women or both?
Maids do the cooking as most people are too blitzed to do anything but serve more drinks.  Those that claim to cook usually give the directions to the maids.
