It's October already and we're all gearing up for the holidays. There are several coming up. Our Holiday Season tends to blend all the holidays together for one BIG Party for a few months. Music, fireworks, children in their holiday outfits, art exhibits and more. FUN!
We start with Columbus Day's 3 day weekend. The City was quieter as families headed out of town and businesses shut early. Felt like a Sunday in some areas. Traffic out of town on Friday was much more busy, with more road checks and cars.
Nov 2 is All Soul's Day, Ecuador's version of the Day of the Dead, so families will be bussing up the grave sites and visiting the cemeteries.
You can see what a wonderful and heartwarming event this is, where every donation goes directly to the party, no middle people taking a cut or redirecting the money somewhere else, including their own pockets...
Bob and Roxanne's Kid's Christmas Party is our kind of charity! Simple, very organized and focused for the biggest bang for the buck. We hope you agree and will give a little something for the party this year. The pictures of happy children with Papa Noel are priceless!

We'll be posting more info and pics of each holiday 2012 later.
