Does anybody have a favorite video or maybe even PowerPoint presentation that illustrates Christmas traditions in a Latin American country? This is for beginning level Spanish. Please cite source where I can obtain it. Thank you!

I have used a segment from the old Disney movie The Three Caballeros (Los tres caballeros). It explains the tradition of las posadas in Mexico. The English version explains the tradition, while the Spanish version just sings las posadas. (I assume they assume the Spanish speaking audience needs no explanation of the tradition.) This may work for you.

IF you like to teach Christmas traditions in Spain, I  would recommend the video "Feliz Navidad" from the Video ELE series on Youtube.  The proficiency level is A2 according to the European framework.

I have created several Notebook units that cover Navidad in Mexico, Chile, Guatemala and Spain. I love the Smartboard because it allows you to introduce media that makes culture a lot more real to students. Here is the link to my store at Teachers Pay Teachers, if you are interested:
