Noche buena is a Spanish word referring to the night of Christmas Eve and celebrated on December 24 every year. For me, Noche Buena is the most exciting time of the Holiday season so I prepare weeks ahead to make sure my family enjoys the meal. It is literally “the Good Night” especially since I always associate Noche buena with good times. This year I will prepare ham, Hot Tsokolate and suman . Nothing too heavy. Before the Noche buena, we take an early dinner so there is appetite later that night.
