  11. 11. History of C H R I S T M A S <ul><li>From 1969 until 2007, the holiday of Christmas was banned from the country. This was a rule set forth by Fidel Castro and held ground for more than three decades. Mingling a combination of Latin music and culture, the celebration of Christmas prior to the reign of Castro involved a two-week long festivity. On December 24, Christmas Eve, it was tradition to begin celebration with an extravagant feast. Whole families, and sometimes, whole neighborhoods, would gather together for the Christmas feast, and the celebration would last throughout the day. The festivities would be highlighted with boisterous Latin style rhythms, usually referred to as Danzon Music. On Christmas Day, the festivity would continue, but activities would switch from dining and bright music, to a religious ceremony. A traditional procession of friends and family would gather to put a model of the newborn Christ in a manger. The rest of the day would involve celebration with family.Finally, a few weeks after December 25, the end of the Christmas celebration would come in the form of another symbolic Cuban ritual. On January 6, Children in Cuba would be given three gifts to represent the three gifts of the Magi. </li></ul>
