    One of the things I like most about the DR is that Dominicans say "Feliz Navidad!".

    Hi Rollout, the biggest surprise for me regarding Dominican Christmas was the way the dinner was handled. I've experienced many Christmas dinners over the years with different families and they all went pretty much the same. There wasn't a formal sit down where everyone sat around a big table and ate a hot dinner together. Instead there was a large table of prepared delicious foods set out and as people arrived they grabbed a plate and ate. The food tended to be cold although very good and the Dominicans never minded this but as a Gringo I longed for a piping hot Christmas meal. After that everyone took to the street in front of the house and had like a big block party with lots of drinking. This part I love. Maybe you will experience something different but this is what I have experienced in my almost 10 years of being here.

    From my understanding there will only be immediate family present, but I've seen how that has turned out in the past. I've been to the house before, and they are very welcoming ans gracious. I expect abuela, sister and baby brother, but its lights out if drunken tia Candy arrives. We shall see.
    My primary concern was any particular obsvervance/rituals that That should prepare for.
    Also not looking forward to the plane ride over on the 23rd. I know it's gonna be a sihtshow
