Nacimientos- California’s Gold (111)

In this holiday special, Huell visits two Los Angeles-area families who faithfully create elaborate nacimientos, or nativity scenes, which are a focal point of many Mexican American homes during the Christmas season. Huell learns about the tradition and how it began in California. Nacimientos translates to “birth of baby Jesus.”
