I haven't been posting as often as I would like, but I can't let this one slip through the cracks. Its time to talk about Purisima, which is undoubtably the most awesome Nica holiday that I know about to this date and time. Purisima is celebrated by lighting off as many firecrackers and fireworks as you possibly can. Children go with their parents to different houses and sing to alters for Mary, then the hosts of the house give treats to each person who sang. I only went to one house but I got a bucket with a plantain, an orange, a lime and a sugar cane! It was really fun. The kids get candy and the adults get food products. Perfect holiday. Its like a mixture of halloween and christmas.
