national holiday

so today in argentina it is a holiday. It is dia del virgen, or virgin day. On this day, everyone around the country honors and prays to their favorite virgin "saint". It seems like each town has their special virgin, that you can pray to and what not. Obviously this is a very catholic holiday.
and yes, they decorate the malls here with all kinds of christmas decorations. including a big tree... however, i have yet to see a live "santa".

Sounds crazy, praying to idols and still decorating for Christmas. They sound as lost as Americans, not knowing the reason for the season. Merry Christ-mas! Keep spreading the word in Cordoba. We're praying for.

I feel offended by this comment. It's intolerant and ignorant to say the least.
