It's time for GBLN's Parranda!

You know what a Parranda is, don't you?

Pa-rran-da (n): In Puerto Rico, Parrandas are musical festivities in the Christmas season holidays. They are also known as trullas navideñas and are associated with pride with customs of the traditional Puerto Rican jibaro.

Pa-rran-dista (n): Who goes to a Parranda? Why a Parrandista, of course. That means reveler, party-goer or party animal.

Pa-rran-de-ar (v): "Me gusta parrandear."  or "Mi cliente es culpable de parrandear en Bridgeport," or "My client is guilty of partying in Bridgeport."

Navideño (adj): Describes something as being very Christmassy. As in, "sabor navideño" or the fruit punch Ponche Navideño.

Now that you know what it is, here's how to enjoy it!
