tvOur friends atWUSFin Tampa have been collecting holiday stories and traditions from around the state for a series they call "Florida Holidays."The following was originally posted byWUSFreporterDalia Colón.
Confession: Publix holiday commercials turn me to mush.
Maybe it's the music. Maybe it's because I'm already in the holiday spirit. Or maybe it's just good marketing.
Barbara Ann Martin played Sharon, Carmencita’s friend, on the TV show Que Pasa, U.S.A.? More than thirty years later, she is still recognized by fans of the show in Miami and around the country. She finds this a little unsettling, but is happy to still make so many people laugh.
Since Que Pasa, U.S.A.?, Martin has worked mostly in communications, broadcast and film production. She lives in Miami.
