For a part time worker who works 1 day a week (for 52 weeks) for $50 pesos a day:
15 day Aguinaldo x (52 days/365 days) x $50 pesos a day = $106.85 peso Aguinaldo.
2. INM office will be closing for Navidad y New Years after Dec. 19, 2014.
3. The season of La Rama is underway. Groups of boys & girls have started their nightly “caroling”.
If some kids ring your doorbell and start singing, turn on the lights out front and find your coin purse: you may have your first foto-op of the season. Children carry little homemade alters, set-up in cigar boxes, lit by a candle, and sing a series of La Rama songs during the weeks before Christmas (antes de Noche Buena y Navidad).
4. It’s the season of the Peregrinos (pilgrims) Guadalupanos – aka Antorchistas:
Groups of runners, walkers, cyclists, making their way to the Nuestra Señora church at La Mejorada on Calle 50 y 57/59. Head on down in the evenings and have fun listening to the pilgrim’s stories and festive atmosphere, culminating on Dec. 12, el Dia de la Virgen de Guadalupe.
