This week on Fronteras we look at some of the many ways families in our southwest border states are celebrating the season.  Families separated by the border reunite.  A Slovakian wife and her Hispanic husband blend their cultures.  A Baltimore transplant tries tamales for the first time.  Musician Jose Feliciano shares the story behind his famous Christmas carol, Feliz Navidad.  And high school students in Allen, Texas pack their bags for the Rose Bowl parade.
