Christmas Decorating Mexican Style

Christmas Seasons Greeting from Mazatlán.  It is now time to decorate for the season.  The stores here have been decorated for weeks, so it was time to join in the spirit and get decorated.

We've got our piñata hanging over the dining room table.
Most of the Mexican decorations we have are woven palm leaves.  I like using the traditional crafts.  When in Mexico, do as the locals do.

Our front door.
Fabric from El Centro for table runners.
Palm leaves woven in natural and red.
We decided to have only a tree made of Christmas lights on our deck.  We will be leaving Mazatlán on December 17th to fly back to the Pacific Northwest for the holidays.  I didn't want to have to deal with a live tree after being gone for 17 days.  The imported live trees don't do that well in the heat, most of the needles have dropped by Christmas day.

A slightly unsteady night shot up six floors.

Through the condo looking out.
Ho Ho is good on this cold Winters night.  Balcony slider and front door open, it's still in the 70's with a nice breeze blowing through.
