They wore traditional clothes. And, once they did all that, they made a hole in the ground to make offers to the mother Earth as a thank.

I saw shamrocks everywhere, and I didn't know the shamrocks used to be used to convince people to be christians and to make them undertand the Trinity, that there was only one God, but with three people: father, son and holy spirit. It was a religious festival exclusively of the christians, but now, everyone celebrates it no matter where they are if they are irish.

I was on Ireland last year, and on March 17th they celebrated the Saint Patrick's Day. Someone told me it's to remember the death of Saint Patrick, a Saint of Ireland. There were parades all around Ireland, but the biggest was on Dublin, with all the people wearing green clothes, full dressed as leprechauns or with hats and fake red hair beards because of a tradition. Even the beer was green. I heard the united states painted a river all green because of it.

It fascinated me how many people were on the streets to see the parades, to dance their traditional dances with a glass of beer. There was so much happiness and pride of their country and culture and I truly enjoyed it maybe I'll be back next year.

I was in Salta to see the National Fest of Pachamama, but also Tucuman did it. It's a tribute to mother Earth that people from the Pueblos Andinos do every year, It started on August and it ended at the end of the month. People did a lot of rituals to thank the mother Earth for their food and animals. They danced throwing water, flour with little pieces of color paper to each other, and ate natural food only. They drank wine, and wore traditional clothes.

It started as a festival of one day only back in 1996, but through the years it started to last longer and from 2006 it last five days.

There was one day where they chose the Pachamama of the year, who was the oldest and wisest woman there. The chosen stayed sat on a stone throne while a group of people carried her on a parade. She was with the Yastay, who represented the own of all animals, the Pujillay, who represented the devil, and the Ñusta, who represented all the fruits and vegetables. Also, on the final day, they chose La Alajita who's the queen of the carnival but you had to know the traditions of the place to be choose.

I went to Japon to Tobata Ward and I found out they celebrate a summer festival called Tobata Gion Oyamakasa, every July and it is a tradition of 200 year old.During the day, the Nobori Yamakasa floats, decorated as all original Yamakasa floats looked like, are covered with beautiful gold and silver special and traditional cloth so they are exhibited on a big parade on the streets of the city.

At night, these decorations are taken down and replaced with 309 paper lanterns covering all the floats, transforming them into pyramids of light. Each of the 10 m tall, 2.5 ton latern floats are carried by about 60 men who shout “Yoitosa, yoitosa!” to the rhythm of gongs and drums. It's a beautiful image on the streets with all the lights.
