Christmas celebration had been banned by the government until the visit of Pope John Paul II in 1998. Since then it has been celebrated in a unique Cuban way. On Christmas Eve Cubans eat special dishes for dinner. These include roasted pig, black beans, white rice, yuca con mojo (special marinade with garlic, onions, and sour oranges) and Cuban bread. Witness the traditional Christmas revival in Cuba.
