candeleria

In the Jardin
In San Miguel de Allende, Candeleria, or Candlemas, is more of a pagan spring festival than a religious one (though it is that too). Maidens throng the streets in bright colors with garlands on their heads while the older folk buy flowers to plant in their gardens.
   I think I'll be ranked with the gardeners this year.
