Another wonderful pyrotechnic tradition in Guatemala. Every December 7th, Burn the Devil. Buy (or, we make) a pinata in the form of a devil. Dress him in your old clothes. If you want to stop smoking, put your cigs in his pocket. If you want to stop drinking, put a bottle of booze in his pocket. Then you wrap/fill him with firecrackers, and then light him at exactly 6PM. We generally dowse him in gas too – just to be sure he burns, Real Good! Family, Fireworks and Fun! Definitely a Buena Cosa!
