The Night of the Little Candles
La Noche de las Velitas

On this night in Colombia, people spill into the streets and light candles along windowsills, on balconies, along the streets, and each city and town turns on their Christmas lights. It truly is a night of lights!

The Night of the Little Candles is a traditional holiday in Colombia on 7 December each year. It begins the Christmas season in the country which lasts until 7 January.  At Macondo, we celebrate it throughout the beginning of December each year with candles, wish-making, singers and carols.  Thanks Wikipedia.
