Yesterday we celebrated el "Día de las Velitas" (candles day). It's the day that marks the start of christmas, It's celebrated since 1854. It is said it was declared a holiday since December 8th was the day of virgin Mary's immaculate conception. The holiday is today, and we light candles yesterday, people gather with friends and family at home, parks or at the streets.
Merry christmas to all, or at least the start of it.
