Signs of Christmas are popping up everywhere and Zihuatanejo is quite clever and artistic with how they do Christmas trees. There are a few cut evergreen tree here, but the weather isn’t conducive to them lasting until Christmas.
I have decorated, put out the nativity scene, a couple of Santa’s here and there hung the
wreath on the balcony and I was done. Took me maybe ten minutes, at home it took me two days minimum. I’m enjoying the simplicity.
El Centro Zihuatanejo shines this Christmas season like the brightest star! All through the pedestrian streets there is a canopy of sparkling lights. The Zocolo is in full dress with enormous lighted gift packages for people to stand in and have their picture taken.
It makes people happy just to walk around and admire it, take pictures, visit with friends, simple enjoy the splendor. It’s so beautiful it almost makes me sad to leave this beauty to go home for a week at Christmas, but then I am anxious to have all 4 of my children together for the first Christmas in probably 20 years, and to have most of the grand-kids there also.
Yesterday our street decorated their shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patron saint of this state and then carried her through the streets of town to the local church. They were trying to attach lights with bobby pins when I donated a spool of wire to the cause.
