Tish Hinojosa is a singer/songwriter from San Antonio, Texas. She talks about her memories of Christmas in a Mexican-American household — the smells, the sights and, most importantly, the sounds. And she plays songs that take her, and many other Mexican Americans, back to their childhood: "Arbolito," "A La Nanita Nana," and "Las Mananitas."
