Juanito and Cachita McRex …. “🇵🇷 ‘Together for the Holidays – A Gallery’ 🇵🇷 …. “!!

~November 27, 2021~~


A’la tradition of ‘Elf on the Shelf‘, someone in Puerto Rico decided that we needed our own creation and our own tradition. I think it was genius.

My jibaritos will be known from now on as Juanito and Cachita McRex!

It seems that the initial creation was the “Jibarito‘. Of course, before long, a young ady had to accompany the boyt, hence (I guess), the “Jibarita‘ arrived!!

I’m sure going to have plenty of fun with my young arrivals!!


Elf on the Shelf now has a friend to welcome the holiday season. His name is Jibarito. Puerto Rican families in Hartford and worldwide are embracing the cute little guy and the book that tells his Christmas story.

Jibarito de la Cajita” was published by Victor and Merari Febus, a Puerto Rican couple. On Dec. 15 at 6 p.m., Victor Febus took part in a Facebook Live book talk, presented by the organizers of the annual Greater Hartford Puerto Rican Day Parade & Festival Del Coqui.

In a phone interview from their home in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, Victor Febus said he and his wife came up with the idea of Jibarito when looking at their Christmas decorations, which included Elf on the Shelf.


“We were thinking of the tradition of jibaro, which means countryman.

It’s part of Puerto Rican tradition. Every Puerto Rican has a jibaro inside,” Febus said.

“We thought of that, and we saw the elf, and we said OK, why don’t we do something similar to that, a jibarito?”

My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
