Costa Ricans are experts in making do with what they have. So it is no surprise that a jocote tree is being drafted for Christmas. That is at the Biblioteca Municipal Tulio Perlaza in Sabana Sur this afternoon.
Jocotes are those little green and orange fruit with the large pit inside.
The nine meter (29-foot) tree will be decked out just as if
it were an evergreen. There will be Christmas carols at 3:30 p.m. with a chorus of seniors at 4:30 p.m. There is a band concert at 5 p.m. and the lighting of the tree at 6 p.m.
The library is one of the chain maintained by the municipality. It is four blocks south of Parque la Sabana.
Another Christmas tree activity will be Wednesday at the Museo de Arte Costarricense. That will be at noon at the museum, which is in Parque la Sabana.
