DIY Three Kings Ornaments

Epiphany is in 5 days, and we are so excited!  Of course, our Christmas tree is still up and we're making Three Kings Ornaments.

This year I really wanted to make these ornaments,  and it's really hard, and nearly impossible to find king shaped cookie cutters.  So I made my own, and so can you. You just need a little bit of creativity.

Use aluminium cookie cutters that you can reshape:

New Years Eve Global Traditions

For as long as I have been married we have never celebrated New Years Eve how it is celebrated it in Puerto Rico.  In Puerto Rico families gathers to eat, sing aguinaldos, light up fireworks, and after the clock hits 12 midnight everyone listens to El Brindis del Bohemio.

Christmas in Puerto Rico: Puerto Rican Roast Pork

The Puerto Rican roast pork or as it's commonly known "lechón asado" is a staple in every menu across the island during the Christmas holiday. Served with arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas), guineos en escabeche (pickled green bananas), pasteles (similar to tamales), and ensalada de coditos (cold pasta salad) it is an explosion of flavors and pure deliciousness!

Be warned! This menu is not for those on a diet! 👀

Multicultural Resources for Raising World Citizens

When my baby was born (8 years ago) I was sure of one thing. I wanted to raise him to embrace his multiculturalism, and to become a global citizen. 



Besides, exposing him to foods, and books from other countries I also rely on resources such as the Diversity Calendar and Games Around the World that I am featuring today. These are resources  you can use to help you raise a world citizen.

Queen Girls Collection Children's Book

Now more than ever our little girls need to see themselves depicted in strong powerful women that can be found in children's books.  Books that they can open to read, and see themselves as the queens they are bound to become into one day.

Is Santa Real? Telling My Son the Truth about Santa



Last night my child sits down to write to Santa and to the Three Kings.  He's done this since he was a toddler  where he'd scribble what he wanted.

Stress-Free Holiday Shopping


I have a confession to make. I really hate going out to stores to shop especially around the holiday season. I cringe at the thought of long lines, crowded stores, and trying to figure out what Christmas Gifts to buy for my loved ones.
