Keep in mind, this is the first time I have even been to a celebration for San Judas and seen the Matachines dance! So, I was kind of skeptical about this, I have been asking anybody what this is and nobody would tell me all week.
Well, yesterday, Miguel started getting sick and didn't really want to go but, I insisted. One, I was very curious as to what the fuss was all about. Two, I definitely didn't want Miguel's family mad at me because, we didn't go. So, at about 8, off we go.
I did not regret going, the Matachines is definitely an experience and I highly recommend it to anybody who has not seen them!!! After see this, Jeni and Nando want to dance on December 12 for la Virgen da Guadalupe!!! I can't wait to see them dancing!!
Here are some pictures from the dance last night:
Our nephew, the yougest Matachin.
The one looking at the camera is my youngest sister in law.
Our 2 nieces and nephew.
The 2 closest are our nephew and niece.
The youngest matachin dancing and like everything in Mexico, it is not real without the dog!!!
There were a total of 22 Matachines.
All in all, it was a great night. We didn't get home until after midnight last night!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
