In the weeks close to Christmas Day, in Colombia, we have the celebration of the Novena Navideña. The word "novena" means nine and marks the last nine days before we receive the "baby Jesus"

The other name for this tradition is Novena de Aguinaldos, because it includes the Christmas Songs typical to the season, or villancicos, and also those funny games of gifting with your family or friends, like secret friend in which we create a funny game with close friends to celebrate the season.

Usually 'Las Novenas' are a Catholic tradition, where prayers are included and the Bible story is shared, but we repeat the same prayers
