Every holiday season it is a rule of thumb that Latinos must take all pictures by the Christmas tree. Why? Because the abuelitos want to see how much you've grown in the last... 12 months?! Don't you dare around this time say you want to snap a picture. The first suggestion will be that it must be taken by the tree. What can we say other than—IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!!
P.S. That's my sister Maria posing by the tree (she'd totally kill me if she sees that I put this on the blog! Shhh, I trust you guys. If there's anything Latinos are good at is keeping secrets! Riiiiight? ;) )
