Wakcha Karay

Maria Lanza Arancibia - Ecuador


March 29, 2018

*Feliz Jueves Santo! *Every year on this day the *Wakcha Karay* is celebrated in Peguche. The people from the community prepare *morocho, colada* and other traditional foods and stand in front of the *capilla* to share with the rest of the families. Some of the people that come are called *rezadores* (reciters), they approach the families and pray for the dead souls in their family -especially kids´-, in exchange for each prayer they give them a spoonfull of food.
