on December 7th, Guatemalans prepare a fire with leaves, sticks and useless articles to burn the devil. Believe it or not, children help find the materials to create the fire and are pretty much part of the whole process. This tradition started in colonial times when people were preparing for the celebration of the Immaculate Conception. Burning the Devil is one of the most recognized Guatemalan traditions, and tt shows the victory of the Virgin Mary over the devil. It also represents a rebirth, letting the bad go away to allow goodness to come in.At the time the devil burns, many Guatemalas broom their homes from the inside to the outside. The purpose is to make sure the devil doesn’t come in, and instead, finds his way to burn in hell. After booming, families spay holy water on the broom.
