Fast Fashion in the past couple of years has pretty much fixed itself on large stores, such as H&M and Zara, where clothing lines change frequently to adapt to changing trends, but the downside is less quality in the products, and a lot of waste for the environment.

Christmas traditions in Peru date back to 1535, which is when the first Christmas was believed to be observed in the South American country. Given that the majority of the Peruvian population practices Catholicism, it comes as no surprise that they have a long and celebrated history of Christmas traditions. Some Christmas traditions in Peru are similar to those practiced in the United States and Europe, while others are very different. Here is a look at how Peruvians celebrate a typical Christmas holiday.
Well, Peruvians don't actually in July celebrate Christmas in July, but December is the first month of summer in Peru. As of matter of fact, the first day of summer comes just shortly before Christmas, on December 21. So, while students in the northern hemisphere are on their Christmas or winter break, in Peru they are actually on summer break.
So, just as many of those who live in climates that have the four seasons cannot imagine Christmas without snow, Peruvians cannot imagine (well, the climate doesn't allow it) a Christmas with snow…unless they live in the Andes of course. This is why the traditional Santa Claus, dressed in his boots and heavy red coat and hat, is not an old tradition in Peru, but an adaptation from western cultures. As a matter of fact, the Peruvian government banned Santa Claus and presumably his likeness because they believed that he was a depiction of western capitalism and greed.
One of the things that is unique about Christmas in Peru are the retablos in every home. While it would appear to be a nativity scene that can be found in homes across South America and throughout the world, these are very special.Years ago when Roman Catholic priests attempted to convert the Indigenous population to Catholicism these mini altars were used to share religious messages.Today they are made from wood, stone or pottery to convey the manger scene.
For those who celebrate Christmas, December 25 is the big day for gift giving and receiving. In Peru, the big day is Noche Buena or "Good Night", on December 24. On this night, after mass (for practicing Catholics) everybody goes home to open gifts and feast on an elaborately prepared Christmas meal of traditional roasted turkey. At midnight, the adults toast with champagne and children raise their glasses of hot chocolate as fireworks shine in the night sky.
