Christmas Tamales - Tamales Navideños
By Willie Nemeth and Mario Hernandez Paz

In a small village
a simple tradition exists.
Among a wonderful people
it is the custom of the women
to cook tamales, place them
in baskets, cover them
and adorn them with typical
napkins of brillant color.

The women carry these baskets
on their heads,
and cross the streets of the town
to distribute and share
with their friends,
and the poor in that place.

Hard working hands,
humble people,
generous hearts,
precious traditions of the village
and of Christmas,
change simple people and things
into a colorful expression of great wealth
and the true meaning of Christmas.
    En un pequeño pueblo
existe una tradicion sencilla.
Entre su gente maravillosa
acostumbran las mujeres
cocinar Tamales, ponerlos
en canastos, cubrirlos
y adornarlos con servilletas
típicas de colores muy vistosos.

Las mujeres cargan estos canastos
en sus cabezas,
y recorren las calles del pueblo
para repartir y compartir
los tamales con sus amigos,
y con los pobres del lugar.

Manos hacendosas,
gente humilde,
corazones generosos,
tradiciones preciosas del pueblo
y de la navidad,
convierte gente y cosas sencillas
en un colorido de gran riqueza
en este humano convivir.
