día de las velitas

Yesterday was "El Día de las Velitas", spanish for "Day of the Little Candles."
It's a Colombian religious holiday representing the eve of the Immaculate Conception.
The day also marks the start of the Christmas season, just like Thanksgiving marks the Christmas season in the USA.

My family and I celebrated it, like we do every year even if we're 1,600 miles from home.
