They got prostitutes but no Santa!!

While Cuba has lots of jineteras they defiantly don't have much of a Christmas spirit. The communist island, which outlawed Christmas in 1969 in order to get people to work through Castro's attempt of a record sugar harvest, began celebrating the holy holiday in 1997 as a good will gesture to Pope John Paul II.

But till this day Christmas decorations are as rare as full noche buena dinner. Many Cubans don't know or understand the holiday on the atheist island.

Read this article "Santa blacklisted in Cuba, no Xmas spirit" for more information...
