Christmas season arrives in Tijuana

The Christmas season has arrived in Tijuana. Christmas trees are for sale in lots around town, and Santas are popping out all over.

Christmas tree sales traditionally start around Nov. 20, Mexico's Revolution Day. This is before Thanksgiving, which many Tijuana residents also celebrate.
