Many people prepare for the arrival of Christmas months in advance. The first traces of wrapping paper and decorations arrive in stores as early as September, transforming the holiday into a much more secular celebration than its modest Christian beginnings. Despite Christmas being an important date in the lives of today's Christians, the holiday failed to gain prominent status until relatively recently. Research indicates that as late as the 19th century, Christmas was not even a legal holiday requiring a day off from work. That's why 19th century readers of the classic Christmas tale, "A Christmas Carol," were not shocked at Bob Cratchit having to work on Christmas Day. The United States Congress used to meet on Christmas Day because it was not a national holiday. In 1836, Alabama became the first state to officially recognize Christmas, but it didn't become a legal holiday across the country until June 26, 1970. Today's Christmas celebrations include traditions from around the world. Some ascertain that it was the Church's doing to schedule Christmas at a similar time to the pagan festivals, such as Saturnalia, that took place during the winter months. But many biblical scholars argue that this was not the case. Some pagan influences, such as holly and mistletoe as well as the burning of a yule log, have long been a part of Christmas traditions. Santa Claus is one of the more recognizable symbols of Christmas. He is based on St. Nikolas of Myrna, an area that is part of modern-day Turkey. St. Nikolas is the world's most popular non-Biblical saint and is one of the saints most portrayed by artists. Early depictions of St. Nikolas show him as a stern man who delivered his share of discipline. Eventually, those depictions changed to show a figure more associated with generosity. Throughout history there have been characters from around the globe, such as the Viking deity Odin, who were precursors to Santa Claus. Myth states that Odin rode his eight-legged flying horse in the winter. Odin gave out gifts to well-behaved children and punishments to those who misbehaved. Children would text and images by ricardo beltran left: musicians playing christmas carols

fill boots or stockings with treats for the flying horse. Regardless of the origins of Christmas, today it is hard to deny that Christmas is a commercialized success. It is a national holiday not only in the United States but also in other areas of the world, and it is best known for the tradition of giving presents to others. In fact, many people head to the stores well in advance of the Christmas holiday to purchase all of the presents on their shopping lists. The shopping season tradition may be traced back to the time of World War II, when it was necessary to mail gifts early to the troops serving in Europe so that they would be able to open them in time. Merchants realized that this concept could be used when gifting troops as well as private citizens, reminding shoppers to make their holiday purchases early so they could mail them to relatives near or far. As a result, the advanced shopping season was born. Although many people feel Christmas begins when the first bag of tinsel appears on a store shelf and ends when the last present is opened on December 25th, the true religious holiday does not coincide with merchant schedules. While most people are bustling to and from department stores and malls, Christians are participating in Advent, which was traditionally a solemn season of reflection and fasting. Christians are supposed to spend Advent preparing for the birth of Jesus Christ and the joy that ensues during the weeks leading up to December 25. Similarly, the joyous time of Christ's birth is a day of celebration that does not end on December 26 but continues for 12 days until the Epiphany, also known as Little Christmas, when Magi were reported to have visited the infant Christ and give him gifts. Although the more traditional day for gift-giving would seem to be on the Epiphany, by the time that day arrives many people have already taken down their Christmas decorations. Christmas is a holiday steeped in many different traditions, and many people have their own ways of celebrating all through the month of December. top right: santa claus portrayed as a saint right: santa's helpers village

text and photographs by chad deal

I

t’s an exciting time for Tijuana. Words such as “hip” and “revitalized” are taking the place of “corrupt” and “decapitated” in both international headlines and barroom conversations. With the worst of the violence behind them and homicide rates approaching half of what they were three years ago, the infamous border city has begun to reconstruct itself in a fashion that is refreshingly all its own. Sure, most of the old clichés of tourist mecca TJ are still readily seen on Avenida Revolución. Perhaps donkeys painted with zebra stripes (Tijuana’s de facto mascot, the “zonkey”) will always be posted on Downtown street corners, chawing stoically on corn husks. text and photographs by chad deal above: the entry to retro Leyva's Paradise before the show begins.

Maybe nightclub doormen will always entice passersby with discount margaritas, and when that doesn’t work, divulge that they also offer “anything you want.” But a new Tijuana also exists here, one which doesn’t depend on foreign depravity to maintain its afterhours pulse. Since early 2009, Calle Sexta (Sixth Street) has been the epicenter of Tijuana’s nightlife renaissance by catering to the local youth with craft beer, alternative music, and quirky venues that, when gauche, are also good-natured and probably ironic. So perhaps it’s no coincidence that the second annual Festival Norte Sonoro was held at Leyva’s Paradise,

a vintage nightclub left over from Tijuana’s heyday located just a few doors down from the booming nexus of Sexta and Revolución. Hidden behind a taco shop, Leyva’s Paradise conjures an almost comical vision of outmoded TJ. Mirrored passageways and thousands of flashbulbs animate the forgotten disco, where, last month, six international DJs drew a crowd of locals (and a handful of gringos) to the analog utopia with forwardthinking, digital sounds. As part of a weeklong miniresidency, local ruidoson godfathers Los Macuanos and festival cocurator DJ /rupture (New York) took guest musicians Cardopusher

(Barcelona), Poirier (Montreal), Psilosamples (Brasil), Sun Araw (Long Beach), and Venus X (New York) on a tour of the sights, sounds, and flavors of “the most visited city in the world.â€? During their stay, the guest musicians were given samples to remix of traditional regional sounds such as corrido SierreĂąo, indigenous songs, banda Sinaloense, and the prominent tuba lines characteristic of a gritty narco ballad genre called movimiento alterado. Unfortunately, most of the DJs had not yet completed remixes to debut at the festival, but Los Macuanos member Reuben Torres says that an EP and documentary will surface soon. Torres, who helped educate the guests on the context behind the regional samples, says he would like to hear remixes acknowledging the intentions of the traditional songs

rather than appropriating them into an entirely new sound – an approach one could call “reverse sampling.” “This kind of stuff hasn’t happened in years,” says Torres. “Not that is hasn’t happened before. Of course it’s happened before. Tijuana used to be – back in the early 2000s – a very big cultural force in Mexico, particularly in the north. They had attention from international media all the time. Kind of like this weekend. People were just very curious to see what this whole anomaly is. They want to know if it’s going to be something that’s going to put the city back on its feet or if it’s just some curiosity that’s going on. The violence happened around 2008, 2009, it got to a peak. So in general, the city died culturally, you could say, for a lot of reasons. And now it’s slowly resurging.” Unlike many of the guests, post-dub loopsmith Sun Araw visited Tijuana above: sun araw from long beach, ca playing at the festival Norte Sonoro. right: Disco ceiling on the terrace

frequently as a kid, doing the “typical Avenida Revolución thing.” “This was my first time spending any serious time in the rest of the city,” he says. “It's an incredible place. It's really inspiring to see the arts community re-appropriating some of the amazing spaces that are hanging around. Lots of these spaces are getting turned into galleries, artist studios, or being used to host parties. It's a cool moment for a lot of amazing architecture with serious history.”

All I can say is it´s a beautiful and inspiring city.” What to expect on the EP? “I’m working most with sounds from this band called Fuerza Nueva. It caught my attention because of the groove. The drum sounds combined with bass and accordion makes it big!”

Venezuela-born breakcore pioneer Cardopusher, on the other hand, was seeing Tijuana for the first time.

“I loved what I saw of Tijuana,” says White Rainbow, a guest of last year’s festival in Monterrey. “It has obvious parallels to Portland in the ‘90s with a bunch of things vacant, but a lot of really cool people and ideas and a possibility to re-invent. I think it’s a perfect place to explore the blending of cultures which is, of course, what the Norte Sonoro project is all about.”

“There is a good vibe around the whole city,” the Barcelona resident says. “Everybody has a nice attitude

“I was happily surprised by how vibrant Tijuana was,” says Canadian producer Poirier, who will be

remixing a Norteño track with elements of dancehall. “Maybe [the collapse of tourism] is a good thing, because Tijuana can build a scene for its own people. Tijuana is quite unique. It's so close to the US, [and] so far from Mexico City. I'm fascinated by all the relationships (and meanings) that derive from the fact the border is so close, such a part of daily life, how many people cross it and how San Diego and Tijuana are linked. It's a complex situation. Almost absurd.” “Tijuana’s always in a volatile state because of its geographical location,” says TJ native Torres. “It’s always in a point where it could go anywhere. I think that’s what’s great about the city, that’s what’s exciting about the city, that’s what keeps the city moving and alive.” And it is very much alive.

Coming from a background in molecular biology, Brookes’ newest series of work has taken his knowledge of scientific drawings and expanded them into candy colored and monochrome paintings that explore molecular structure. Presented here is a small portion of Brookes’ scientific abstract pertaining to the artworks: Summary; A survey study of the psychedelic visual landscape and an interpretation of the molecular world of neurotransmitters that generate and mediate both native consciousness and psychedelic experience. Methods; These Neurotransmitters are visualized through the effects they have on the Human Central Nervous System (CNS). By bending the molecules own effects back onto themselves and rendering their structure by way of their effects on the human visual system. I provide a visual interpretation of both exogenous and endogenous molecular structural diagrams (or molecular line diagrams). Each was chosen for its particular effect on the serotonin pathway and it's mediating effect on psychedelic experience. I replaced each atom with a single point that reverberates out into the field interacting with the other atoms in the molecule and resulting in a landscape of vibratory color. In addition these works are accompanied by a number of paintings that reference the peripheral experiences these molecules have on the CNS, especially visual perception. “All together, it’s a lot like taking a bunch of hallucinogenic drugs and looking into an electron microscope, with out all the anxiety and mess”. – Kelsey Brookes Brookes has had recent solo exhibitions in Malibu, Los Angeles, London and Berlin. His work is currently being featured as the cover art for the Red Hot Chili Peppers newest record release.

Brookes has been featured in numerous pop culture and design publications such as GQ, Modern Painters, ARTnews, Playboy, Paper, Juxtapoz, Beautiful Decay, Dazed and Confused, RE:UP, and HUCK.

Durante la temporada navideña estas tiendas ofrecen muchos artículos alusivos que se puede pintar. Algunas ofrecen clases o talleres de pintura donde después de haber pintado las piezas las tratan con fuego para sellar la pintura y dar un acabado brilloso. Los que prefieren pintar la cerámica desde su hogar, pueden visitar su tienda de artesanía local, donde normalmente hay adornos de cerámica sin terminar que se pueden pintar con pinturas acrílicas, que usualmente se encuentran en el pasillo siguiente o en la misma tienda. Estas piezas de cerámica pueden ser protegidas y selladas con una capa de esmalte transparente que ayudará a los adornos año a año. Artesanías de madera: Muchos de los centros artesanales de hoy se han ampliado para incluir secciones dedicadas a artículos de madera no terminados. Todo, desde cartas a recortes de animales, cajas y trenes se puede comprar y ser acabados desde casa. Convierta cajas de recuerdo en cajas de regalo pintándolas y adornándolas con un listón. Pinte y decore el cofre del tesoro, que se puede utilizar para almacenar aperitivos para Santa Claus, los renos y su tripulación. Convierta pequeñas piezas de madera en adornos para el árbol de navidad. Pinte y ponga las iniciales con letras de madera en las medias para identificar a quien pertenece cada una. Las personas creativas también pueden convertir placas lisas de madera en carteles con frases ingeniosas, como "Estacione su trineo aquí". Adornos con artículos encontrados en casa: Los niños pequeños pueden usar cualquier medio para hacer adornos. Guirnaldas hechas de sopa de coditos pintados o palomitas de maíz son tradicionales. Retazos de tela pueden ser cocidos y rellenados con popurrí para hacer bolsitas de olor caseras. Dibujos hechos a mano por los niños pueden ser laminados y colgados en el arbolito. El único obstáculo para hacer adornos usted mismo es una imaginación limitada. Los artículos hechos en casa pueden añadir fantasía y un toque personal a la temporada navideña.
