Cohetes de Guatemala Poster

Who would have thought that the labels for Guatemalan firecrackers would make a good poster. Have you ever bought any of these firecrackers while in Guatemala?

Here’s your Spanish word of the day: Afiche, that’s poster for you.

    When I asked my son what he wanted me to bring him back from Guatemala, he said, “firecrackers!” I explained to him that I couldn’t bring firecrackers back on the plane with me. He was very happy with the poster of Guatemalan firecrackers as a substitute.

    • Good call Lisa, I would be very happy as well.

    Rudy, thanks for bringing back the memories. I love the graphics on fireworks packaging, and saved a few labels from those I bought while living in Guatemala 78-82. The only label I have in common with those in the poster is El Toro Negro. Others I have are: El Halcon, Jaguar, El Fuerte ( an African lion), El Puma, and Relampago (a jet black horse).

    • Wow Don Miguel, I never thought of saving those labels, I wish I did though.
