Winter Solstice Wednesday December 21
Right before the holiday is the Winter Solstice , the shortest day of the year based on the earth’s tilt, which this year falls on Wednesday December 21. In ancient times, the Winter Solstice was looked at as the death and rebirth of the sun or sun god(s) and is still celebrated today by many.

We did a little digging and found some things that are happening around town this day:

Just a few days after the Winter Solstice Sayulita will celebrate Christmas along with most of Mexico on the 24th and 25th of DeCember.

From past experience and talking to long term residents we found the following to be the most reliable when searching for Christmas specials are:
