Los abuelos: A Unique Winter Tradition

“Los abuelos” meant “the grandfathers” to me until I began reading references to the unique winter tradition of “los abuelos,” popular in New Mexican villages in the past. Sooty mountain men appeared with frightening masks to check on the behavior of children. Since I’m easily frightened, I chose to write a gentle version of how I imagine a spunky little girl responding to a visit by “los abuelos.” Enjoy!
