Feliz Navidad! 

Feliz Navidad!

December 18, 2012

With the holiday season upon us our thoughts are consumed by Christmas here in Costa Rica! Being a very catholic country, Christmas is a huge deal and the shops have had Christmas stuff for sale since September. As for most major events in the annual calendar it’s the community that makes them a big success. On Sunday night there was the Christmas Light Parade and the whole community turned out to watch. This also included the people from all the small towns we pass through on our Week of Adventures guided vacations. The lights were bright and the drums loud and the parade lasted several hours. All types of businesses and schools participated in floats and displays, big and small. The smallest was a large white dog dressed in Santa garb and the biggest were on Big Mac style trucks. Rawlings baseball factory had made a giant baseball glove and ball and a truck-sized sewing machine. The people on the float threw balls into the 10’s of 1000’s of people lining the streets.To finish the night there was music and fireworks. The couple here on their Costa Rica adventure honeymoon got to witness this amazing display of local culture first hand. Everyone went home with a Christmas glow and hope for good things in the New Year.
