February 2nd may be not an important day in United States, but in Mexico is completely different . On this day is celebrated a religious holiday known as Día de la Candelaria (or Candlemas in English). Throughout Mexico on this date, people dress up figures of the Christ Child in special outfits and take them to the church to be blessed, and they also meet with family and friends to eat tamales and drink champurrado, as a continuation to the festivities of Three Kings’ Day on January 6th. This is mainly a religious and family celebration, but in some places, such as Tlacotalpan, in the state of Veracruz, it is a major fiesta.
