Here is a look at how Peruvians celebrate a typical Christmas holiday.
Well, Peruvians don't actually celebrate Christmas in July, but December is the first month of summer in Peru.
Given that the majority of the Peruvian population practices Catholicism, it comes as no surprise that they have a long and celebrated history of Christmas traditions.
Some Christmas traditions in Peru are similar to those practiced in the United States and Europe, while others are very different.
At that time they mostly lived in the far South of Italy, with a branch community in Rome, and were generally Greek-speaking.
It is thought that some families (for example the Adolescenti) are descendants of Jews deported from Judaea by the emperor Titus in 70 CE.
So, just as many of those who live in climates that have the four seasons cannot imagine Christmas without snow, Peruvians cannot imagine (well, the climate doesn't allow it) a Christmas with snow…unless they live in the Andes of course.
