It wouldn’t be a Tex-Mex Christmas without tamales, an assortment of cinnamon-sugar treats, and Mexican hot chocolate. But celebrating during this time of year is about more than indulging in good food. For our December 2022 cover story, writer Luis Rendon returned to his hometown of Laredo to learn more about the traditions that shaped his childhood and talk with people working to ensure they live on. From local church posadas to family recipes, ring in the holidays through these tried-and-true Tejano traditions.⁠ ⁠

Over in Galveston, Texans kick off the season with Dickens on the Strand, an annual Victorian-era-themed street festival named after author Charles Dickens. With his son in tow, English writer and illustrator Edward Carey attended the festival, which has run for nearly 50 years, for a taste of home and to marvel at the whimsy of a town he says is unlike anywhere else in the country.⁠ ⁠⁠

Though you’ll find the holiday spirit sprinkled throughout the rest of the issue, this month’s stories also include a guide to the prickly plant life of Big Bend, new findings on ancient North Americans, and how the Christmas Mountains in West Texas got their name.⁠ ⁠
