Tamales for Christmas and Family togetherness

 
Tamales for Christmas and Family togetherness

The LA Times has a great article about the importance of tamles and tamale making in the Latino cutlure.  Sure tamales are delicious and come around during Christmas, but for many Hispanic families, that is just one part of it.

It is a tradition that many still do to this day.
