Description

Merry Christmas! We hope you are enjoying this special day with friends and family, savoring those yummy christmas treats. And speaking of sweets, today's story comes from James Littlejohn who tells us about a christmas treat that he didn't find so sweet.

This holiday dish, called Hallaca, originates from Venezuela and James had the displeasure of having to eat hallaca several times during the month of December as he was serving a mission in Venezuela.

Fortunately during this time, James experienced a Christmas miracle, which he describes as "maybe the greatest christmas present I ever had."
