Here in the United States, we have our own set of Christmas traditions: Santa Claus comes down the chimney, eats a cookie left out for him by eager children, and drops off loads of presents for the kids who have been nice that year. And, of course, everyone has their own unique cultural background which contributes to their festive holiday celebrations.
Around the world, familias celebrate the holidays a little bit differently. Here are 12 fun facts about Latin America and Christmas:

It’s officially the holiday season! How do you and your familia get into the holiday spirit? By decorating the tree with beautiful, handmade ornaments? Baking an enormous batch of sugar cookies? Or maybe just sippin’ hot cocoa with marshmallows and watching A Charlie Brown Christmas?
It turns out, your favorite celebrities aren’t much different! See how Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, Naya Rivera, and more celebrate the holiday season:

Hola, Beasters! I'm so excited that the holiday season is FINALLY here! I love spending time with my family and friends during the holidays, and my favorite holiday tradition would be the pozole that my mom makes almost every Christmas. It's the best!
This year I will be spending the holidays at my home. All of my mom’s side of family and all of my dad’s side of family are coming over. We’re going to have dinner on Christmas Eve and going to my aunt’s house for New Year's Eve. We usually stay up and open (holiday) presents at midnight. I love it!

This week was extra special for not only the press, but for fans of the X Factor as well. We'll chalk it up to Christmas glee, (not the fact that it's the semi-finals) that we were treated to a double dose of judges and contestants!
We chatted with both individually as well as press conference style, with host Mario Lopez replacing Demi Lovato for the press conference. The judges talked Christmas plans, most memorable things from Christmas past, and cooking!

Happy Holidays from Vanessa & Kobe Bryant! Each year, celebs release their somewhat over-the-top holiday greeting cards for the world to see, and quite frankly, we can't get enough of them! The Kardashian's collaboration shot by David LaChapelle was a tad bit insane, between the hair, clothes & all the drama that came along with it, so it's refreshing to see Kobe & Vanessa get all glitz-and-glam'd up but really showcase what's most important - family! And what a beautiful family they have.

If the holidays are supposed to be about fun and catching up with family and friends, why do they always seem to drive us loco? Sure, there is a ton of pressure to get the perfect gift and throw a great party, but that doesn't mean you need to spend lots of time planning or break the bank.
