Bonfire Fiesta

This picture is witness of the bonfire that was held in honor to the Virgen of Candelaria, or so it may be. On February 2 each year for more than 200 years people on this Island have been celebrating this religious festivity.

For some on purpose, for others as fun.

It’s all about playing a bit with fire and celebrating a “fiesta” along the way.

Nonetheless, each bonfire is supposed to purify not only the person, but the collective towards building a better future.

Do you my dear friends, believe that a bonfire will be enough to make us more pure to what our future withholds for each one of us???
