Celebrations

by Vicky and Sara


Virden de la Candelaria" is a celebration by the Incas on the 8 to 14 of February. They celebrated it every year. They dance and wear those hats. Everyone else will sit down and watches. The Sun celebration is most important celebration. It is like the Inca's Birthday too. The Incas sat together and listen to the gods and their idea about gods. They will have a show and it always about the sun, moon, star, thunder, Huanacauri and the Earth. The people sat all together and then sing and dance. They told stories about the sun. One story was that there was once a man standing on a platform and praying to the sun saying please let us have much food and let us be rich. And 3 days past. Then a big rain came. After the rain was over the crops grew fast and they had alot food, the food was sold and the Incas had money. Just as what the man said. That is why the Inca people believe in the sun. Because a man who had believed the sun once said to the sun that I want the Incas to be rich and have food. That's why the Incas believe in the sun.
