christmas in Ecuador

By TonyGupton

If your in Ecuador during Christmas you will witness  festivals and celebrations of the baby Christ.  Today, Christmas festivities begin earlier in the month with Novenas, masses and events recalling the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem.Christmas is an important religious festival in this predominantly Catholic country.There is a good chance of a sunny Christmas even in the highlands of Ecuador. Xmas on the beach, enjoying the warm weather and the fresh mango that are in season in December, makes a pleasant change for the holiday season.
