We also did fun winter activities like go ice skating together, fail at making a snowman (it's more difficult than it looks), and go snow-tubing at a ski resort near our house. We would also bake lots of dessert together in the evening, such as cookies, brownies, cake, and pie! Not only did we bake, but we would prepare a staple Puerto Rican food: pasteles. Pasteles take a lot of preparation, so the whole family helps by forming an assembly-line. We start in the beginning of December and freeze them until the holidays. I hope to continue these holiday traditions with my own family in the future.
