Hi Pico!
We are supposed to get a cold front in this weekend but if it's been warm up your way, maybe nothing is coming over here! Saturday is a religious day for our village. They take the virgin that's in the church out to the boat port and have a big mass there outdoors. Then they put the virgin on a decorated boat with the captain of the port, the village priest and one of the virgin's guardians. Then surrounded with about 20 other decorated boats, they go out to sea to lay wreaths to honor the fishermen who have died at sea. One year mom went to the mass and they put her on the boat with the virgin. It was a huge honor. Mom gets seasick so she was really hoping not to be sick in that boat. They also have a boat full of mariachis playing and the little wacky band that plays for the local bullfights is also in a boat. It is quite the procession. After the boats return to port, the villagers carry the virgin back to the village church - about 3 miles - on foot. Then the village ladies serve free turkey tacos and sodas to everyone in the village at the park and there is music and dancing. The virgin in our village watches over the fishermen so this is her special day. One year it was stormy, cold and raining so they didn't have the special mass or go out to sea. They still had the tacos though but it was super cold.
Hope you had a nice day today!
