The end of the year arrives and with it, a mixture of feelings. Christmas is getting closer, time of joy and forgiveness for the Christians, a new year to live, the family, the home, the company. In Argentina, Christmas is celebrated in family or with friends, in a house, usually decorated with Christmas merchandising where there cannot be absent the Christmas tree. The Christmas Eve is the perfect excuse to meet friends and enjoy a nice moment. The choice of food and place is very important for the development of this nice evening. The food is "to the basket" (which means that each guest brings something to eat, usually cold): chicken, pig, sandwiches, salads, sweet bread, nuts, almonds, chocolates, champagne and cider are some of those that never fail. Buenos Aires is one of the most beautiful and imposing cities of the world to receive Christmas. During December it changes until it becomes magic. Making it impossible not to visit. Kids, anxious, wait for Santa Clause that, despite being a Christian celebration, the consumerism and globalization made it into a magic date, making the children wait the cars, the dolls, the table games... that will be waiting for them at midnight, under the Christmas tree. From late November and early December begins the preparations to make the city look like a huge Christmas tree, where the shops invite you to a fantasy and illusion trip, with their storefronts decorated, waiting the Christmas. Christmas proposals in Buenos Aires are varied. Luxury hotels, renowned restaurants, decorated streets, pubs, discos, bars... The options are limitless, depends on the personal tastes by choosing a quiet and peaceful place, or a nosier one.
