Our town fiesta is just a few days away. The municipality has already started decorating the main Poblacion streets with banners and tarpaulins. Since October 21, the nightly programs have lightened up the municipal stage, but unfortunately, the weather has not been very cooperative. It’s been raining too nightly since the festivities started 🙁 But this has not dampen the spirits of the townsfolk.
My family too has started cleaning our house, and I have already listed the things that I will have to buy for the celebration. If I were to decide, I wouldn’t want to have any celebration at all, we actually don’t have visitors. But since the other mommies in school have already expressed their intentions of visiting and joining us during the fiesta, it left me no choice but to prepare some for them.
I grew up not celebrating fiestas such as this, I was brought up in the Protestant ways so festivities are actually not in my vocabulary. It was only when I got married to a true blue Boholano that I came to realize that revelries do exist. It is just so different from what I’ve believed in. I’m no saint and I respect such activities.
Anyway, we are just celebrating the fiesta because people come to the house and that’s just it. Happy Fiesta to Antequera!
