Christmas Trees in Guatemala
Merry Christmas ! ! ! !
When I was there on Christmas Eve, the town was so quiet, I got a bit drunk and went back to my room early. At midnight the fireworks started, then I started hearing English voices outside my room. It turns out a couple could not get to their hotel because of all the fireworks, so they ducked down the alley that lead to my little hotel. The family that ran it fed them and invited them to stay until the fireworks calmed down.
The next day they had a parade where all the children dressed up, like Halloween, and danced down the streets. Rather a nice place to be for Christmas. I just wished I had known what was going to happen, I would have stayed up to see the Christmas eve festivities.
