Learn the Mexican tradition of making tamales with hands-on training. You’ll go home with a dozen!

Tamale making is a Mexican Christmas  tradition.

According to newmexicotravelblog.com, corn was a very important crop in Mesoamerica, with people believing that people were created from corn. Tamales, because they were wrapped in corn husks, became part of ritual offerings. As a nod to those times, people prepare tamales for special occasions including baptisms, weddings, Dia Del Los Muertos, and, of course, Christmas.

Tamales can also be seen as a symbol of the Virgin Mary, carrying in her the baby Jesus or a mother carrying a future life, especially if the tamale contains an olive.
