" Virginity Citations Typical Colombian Weddings Why do you think Bayardo found it unnecessary to take the time and court Angela according to Colombian traditions? If Bayardo was so ready for marriage why do you think he was two hours late? Would you argue that the towns people were obedient Catholics? Do you find it ironic that the only two weddings mentioned (Santiago's and Bayardo's) do not follow Colombian tradition. What do you think this implies?

Typically, most ceremonies and receptions will not include bridesmaid and best man.
Most families will host a dance as part of the celebration. Couples will dance to Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, just about anything. Colombians just love to celebrate and dance.
Many Colombian couples will follow the tradition of Las Arras, which are wedding tokens given by the groom to the bride as a symbol that what is mine is now yours. The Novio: Groom Catholicism is a major religion in all Latin American countries. Therefore, the church has a lot of influence in Latin American society and culture.
In "Chronicle of a Death Foretold", the Latin American community seemed to be very nonchalant about the fatal event of Santiago's death that happened in their presence. Roman Catholicism.

This person will be told a statement but only ONE time! This person will then whisper the message to the first person on his right to his best ability. The message will continue around the circle.
