Mexican destinations to find Christmas decorations
Spheres – Tlalpujahua, Michoacán
The spheres in our little tree are one of the most important items of Christmas and without them nothing would be the same. If you want to stand out and find the most original spheres, you cannot stop going to Tlalpujahua, the town of artisan spheres par excellence. In all shapes, in all colors, giant, large or small, all the spheres you can imagine to decorate your Christmas tree are waiting for you in this town in Michoacán.
Births – Amozoc, Puebla
Putting a birth (or several) at home is a tradition that Mexicans follow year after year. And although many figures are inherited from our parents or grandparents, it is always good to choose your own. For that mission, we recommend you visit Amozoc, Puebla, home of the most famous clay figurines in Mexico. For 100 years, the people of this small town have dedicated themselves to creating cribs of all styles and sizes.
Piñatas – Acolman, State of Mexico
Piñatas are an essential element in Christmas posadas. Fill them with sweets or seasonal fruit, they cannot be missing at your party. These traditional 7-cornered piñatas, symbolizing the deadly sins, are the specialty of Acolman, State of Mexico, which makes around 20,000 piñatas year after year.
Christmas Eve – Tlajomulco, Jalisco
When the streets and houses begin to fill up with the red color of Christmas Eve, it is officially Christmas time. This emblem of Christmas blooms in November and December, and Tlajomulco, along with Zapopan and Acatlán – destinations in the state of Jalisco -, are the main producers. In Tlajomulco there is one of the largest Christmas Eve ranches, so if you want to decorate your house with this beautiful flower, we recommend you buy it right there and, by the way, observe the kilometers of this beautiful Christmas red color.
