“We get together again as a family and this is how we will spend this Christmas together” is the message from Norma Lixta (character starring the actor Lucho Mueckay) about the restraint of his monologue Christmas is over, where are the shepherds.

And that also addresses the facts, customs and anecdotes that cause the well-known end-of-the-year stress. Admission: $ 15.
