    Holiday Celebrations Around the World

    The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures offers a variety of festive activities and charitable efforts for December’s Free Second Sunday.


    International students participating in the AYUSA Global Exchange program will have displays depicting major holidays in their home countries. Dressed in their native attire, they will be available to discuss holiday traditions and other aspects of life at home and their experiences in the U.S.


    Our Lady of Guadalupe Church will perform a traditional Pastorela play, a morality tale about shepherds going to visit the Holy Family in Bethlehem and the snares the Devil uses in attempts to dissuade them.


    The San Antonio Children’s Ballet will have two performances, with suites from their recent rendition of The Nutcracker.


    The San Antonio Food Bank will be accepting non-perishable food items to assist in this increased time of need. Additionally, the first 100 guests will receive cookbooks from the San Antonio Foodbank. The institute will also accept blankets for Communities in Schools SA.
