The Day of the Velitas or Night of the Velitas is celebrated all the 7 and 8 of December in Colombia, where thousands light candles in commemoration to immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary. Being a Colombian school, at Altamira traditions are key to the community culture. That is why the school was illuminated with candles that where lit by our preschool students; it was a morning that revolved around La Luz, joy and hope.
