DescriptionThe accounts Don Pedro gives us, he explains to us why we are living in our town. He also tells us about the day of the saints, and what activities our people carried out; how, for example, they went to beg in the houses. It is the custom of our grandparents: they gave corn in the houses, they gave ayote, they gave güisquil. There were some who came to leave güisquil here, some came to leave corn, some came to leave squash on top of their dead, the activities carried out by the Catholic Church. He also tells us that some people brought food and came to eat in the cemetery.
