AÑO VIEJO OR OLD YEAR DOLL 

  • 28th Dec - 31st Dec: Latin American end of the year. Old Year Doll or Año Viejo, is the main character to show off on the streets and are used in many places to symbolically leave behind bad things from the previous year. Traditionally, this involved burning effigies full of firecrackers or pockets of gunpowder, but for safety reasons, the practice has evolved into something less spectacular but no less important. Below you can find a video of how intense and exciting this celebration can be.
