Over the years, Latino USA has aired many holiday stories. From tamale-making traditions within the Mexican-American communities, to parrandas in the Puerto Rican communities, to the making of the lechón in the Cuban and Cuban-American communities.
One of our most popular holiday shows, however, was originally produced in 1999 called “Las Christmas” and was based on a book of the same title by Vintage Books. It’s actually a collection of holiday memories by Latino writers.
We turned some of the stories from the book into an award-winning radio show. But by far, our favorite story is author Denise Chavez’s story titled, “Big Calzones.”
