NOVEMBER BEFORE DECEMBER

HELLO NOVEMBER

Halloween is done. “El Día de los Muertos” is also done.

It’s time to start stocking up for Christmas, at least in the mind of almost every Puerto Rican.

This is a fridge.

You see “coquito” and “pasteles”.

These are staples of any Puerto Rican Christmas.

It’s a type of eggnog drink (with alcohol, of course) and a typical cooking confection made with green bananas and other root plants.

‘Pasteles’ are somewhat like ‘tamales’.

Nothing like the original!

WHAT IS COQUITO?

There’s no where in the world where Christmas is celebrated as early and for so long as in Puerto Rico.

For Puerto Ricans, Christmas starts after Thanksgiving Day.

After this holiday, Christmas continues for eight days after Epiphany Day (January 6).

We call these extra eight days ‘las octavitas’.

Therefore, don’t be surprise if ‘coquito’ is already in the minds of many Puerto Ricans.

We have to get the ‘coquito’ started because it needs some time for the drink to ‘age’ a bit.

It’s a sweet, yummy eggnog-like drink with a lot of ‘punch’!
