Perpetuating The Holy Week Traditions in Antigua Guatemala No. 3

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash; Perpetuating The Holy Week Traditions in Antigua Guatemala 3

As I have mentioned before, Lent and Semana Santa is an equal-opportunity tradition. As you can see here, even little girls get a chance to carry a float, small, but still their float. By the way, the male carriers are called cucuruchos and the female carriers are known as hermanas cargadoras.

I call the little girls, niñas cargadoras; who knows what’s the proper name for the little girls who carry the float?

    Cucuruchitas….haha!

    • Yes Erick, cucuruchitas would be a good description, but I don’t know why cucuruchos is only used for the men carriers.
