Feliz Navidad: Reindeer Pedro's Bilingual Christmas
Two ways to celebrate a bilingual Christmas this year:
Augie Rios' "Mamacita, Donde Esta Santa Claus?" - which has the incomparable line, "Oh Pancho, Oh Vixen, Oh Pedro, Oh Blitzen..."
David Rieff's article, "Nuevo Catholics", in today's NYT Magazine, about how Latino immigrants are changing the American Catholic Church.
See you at midnight Misa.
