Not today, Satan! Guatemalans burn devil pinatas to start Christmas festivities

дьяволThe annual burning of devil-like paper pinatas started across Guatemala on Thursday, marking the start of Christmas festivities in Guatemala City. Every 7th of December, people gather in the streets to organise traditional bonfires in a ritual 'cleansing' of bad spirits from their homes. But it’s not only the devil who gets set alight. «The characters we get are those of a politician... Еще like [US President] Donald Trump, they ask for that, for the situation of the deportations that happen in the United States,» says pinata salesman Angel Camey. The popular celebration has repeatedly raised concerns due to the high degree of pollution that is generated year on year.
