After dinner on Christmas Eve, we cut out and glued construction paper decorations and hung them on the tree. Soon Luz fell fast asleep and Nancy and I said our goodnights and left before Santa Claus arrived. On Christmas Day we found that Santa had left many gifts under the tree. Luz finished with her decorations and opened gifts. Papa Noel had found Luz in spite of the distance from her home.
We all agreed, with no lights or commercial decorations, it was the most beautiful Christmas tree we had seen.
A turkey dinner with all the trimmings, even a pumpkin pie made the day perfect.

If you are hungry and in Jacksonville, FL, or anyplace within 100 miles of Jacksonville, it would be worth the effort to head to Piscos Restaurant. Sorry, no "Cuy", but everything else Peruvian can be found on the great menu, put together by Virginia and her staff. Evelyn or Elise will be happy to serve you. In my own opinion, the Parihuela is the best. While there, drop a donation in the jar for Luz.
