Public holidays in Colombia
By Bonnie Hamre. While it may seem like it would be a sad affair, in many parts of South America it's a reason to celebrate. Every day of the year has its own saint or saints, but there are more saints than calendar days, and this one major holy day honors them all, including those who had died in a state of grace but had not been canonized. And, to keep things fair, November 2 is celebrated as the Day of All Souls. Like many other Catholic celebrations, in the New World it was grafted onto existing indigenous festivities to meld the "new" Catholicism with the "old" pagan beliefs. In countries where the Europeans eventually reduced the indigenous populations, by one means or another, the celebrations gradually lost their native meaning and became more of a traditional Catholic event.
We are getting close to the date when the English-speaking world takes to raiding costumes stores, and making off with entire stocks of candies from grocery stores. On the other hand, religious traditions in Latin countries such as Spain imbue that night with a different meaning, while also maintaining signs of other ancestral traditions. It is a night to honor the dead and praying for the redemption of souls that are trapped in purgatory. It is customary to light a candle at home in their memory days in advance, and let it consume, to help those souls find their way. When the light is extinguished, it means that one soul found salvation. It is also a belief that, on that night, the dead are allowed to get closer to our world so an unsuspecting pedestrian might come across the Parade of Souls right after midnight.
This holiday commemorates the day on which — according to the bible — all the young baby boys in the village of Bethlehem were executed by Herod the Great. Herod was the brutal roman king of Galilee around the time where Jesus was born. Scared by the thought of loosing his power, he resolved to slay all the the children who were two years old and under. In addition, people in Antiguo Cuscatlan are really into it and they work very hard to make it into a successful event. This festivity basically involves dressing up ceramic or clay baby dolls in different outfits and bringing them to the main church in Antiguo. Therefore hispanic includes Spanish traditions and Latin American ones.
Not a sad event, but a joyous reaffirmation of life
