Cultural fact of the day

Today is Nochebuena, celebrated in Spanish-speaking countries rather than Christmas Day. Dinner is eaten before Midnight Mass, known as misa del gallo. In Latin America, where many countries do not celebrate the día de Reyes, Christmas gifts are given on Nochebuena. This custom is spreading in Spain, although the día de Reyes is celebrated there.
