    You know that these people put their heart in it when the whole family
cooking and hand rolling tamales. I have witnessed some of my Mexican
families making homemade tamales. It is amazing and heart warming to see
all laughing and working together. I was never allowed to participate in the
operation. The head of the family said that me being a guest it would have
disrespectful to themselves to have a guest make tamales. I did get to
participate in the fun and laughter though. They were great people, and
friends, they also made great tamales.

That's one of the nicest posts I've read here. Thanks, Allen. And have a
tamale for me this Christmas, too!
