The Adventure Continues… Nacimientos

I like to share Christmas-themed episodes during this time of year, and this is one that nearly escaped my attention, as I had no idea what “Nacimientos” meant until I took a closer look. I think this is a wonderful tradition, and I hope you’ll enjoy Huell’s visit, originally aired in 1999,  as much as I did.

In this holiday special, Huell visits two Los Angeles-area families who faithfully create elaborate nacimientos, or nativity scenes, which are a focal point of many Mexican American homes during the Christmas season. Huell learns about the tradition and how it began in California. Nacimientos translates to birth of baby Jesus.
