MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
FROM CUENCA, ECUADOR
I have lived in Cuenca almost seven years now, and this was no doubt my overall most enjoyable Christmas Season, since I first moved to this enchanting city in the Andes. The Christmas Holiday Season in Cuenca can be divided into four parts, which begins approximately two weeks before Christmas with El Noche de Luces, followed by Pase de Ninos on the Day before Christmas and Navidad (Christmas Day), the third stage is Vespera Anos Nuevo (New Year's Eve) celebrations, and finally, the big parade of El Dia de los Innocentes on January sixth.
A tourist could come to Cuenca for a month over the Christmas season, and would have a great first time experience in the appreciation of much of what Cuenca has to offer at the zenith of its year, and of all of its holiday festivities, in what also provides the warmest temperatures of comfort during the year.
I haven't posted in quite awhile. Assembling this Christmas season post and album truly was an act of love for me.
The link below is for the Pase del Nino or the Parade of the Children. The photos of which are not provided in the above album link.
