#hispz Holiday Traditions Twitter Party – With $2,000 in Prizes!!!

by Migdalia Rivera


Last week our soon to be launched Latino social media company Hispanicize held a MEGA Twitter Party with 45 prizes worth more than $2,000. Click here for a quick recap. This week we’re hosting another fiesta/party for our Twitter title sponsor Discovery Familia with over $2,000 in gift cards and prizes.  This Wednesday night’s theme: Latino Holiday Traditions.

We want to know what traditions you follow or if you created “new” traditions for your family!

  • Do you put up a tree after Thanksgiving or do you wait for Christmas Eve?
  • Do you have family canciones/songs that you sing each year?
  • Do you open presents at the stroke of midnight or wait till Christmas morning?

There are so many ways of celebrating the holidays, none are better than others and all fit YOUR familia/family! With that said, we want to hear them ALL! Why? Because it may help us start new traditions or remind us of some we lost along the way.

So grab your cup of coquito/Spanish Egg Nog or even a cafecito/cup of coffee and lift your cup in a toast to some of our fabulous sponsors:

  • Discovery Familia
  • LeapFrog
  • George Foreman
  • Mattel
  • SnapFish
  • Latino Leaders Magazine

For your viewing pleasure, below are a FEW of the prizes being given.

Doh, forgot the math again and was called a spambot. Espantoso!

Anyway, now I have to write in Spanish again – it’s hard for me – but it’s fun – so it’s ok.

I said I was coming to the party just to visit – y practica mi español – and to soak up some Christmas – ganar no es importante a mí

perdón, mi español es malo

Merry Christmas
