Christmas Trees of Mexico

Mexico is also as big as the US when it comes to decorating trees.

This first is one from outside of a restaurant.
It was decorated in baskets with various foods in them.
Baskets are big on trees, something not seen on our trees.

The second is a tree of sand. Sand sculptures are made along
the Malecon (boardwalk). Young men make the sculptures and wet them down to keep them in shape. They have dishes to collect donations. I have never seen a young girls do this.
