Christmas In NICARAGUA|
Like many Latin American countries, Nicaragua retains many of the customs of old Spain. In the weeks leading up to Christmas people
stroll the streets where there are many things to buy: candles, Nativity pictures, toys and foods. Children carry fragrant bouquets to the alter of the
Virgin and sing carols. On Christmas Eve, church bells beckon the people to Midnight Mass. On January 6, the feast of the Epiphany, it is the three
wise men who brings gifts for the children. Often the Holiday season concludes with a brilliant display of fireworks.
