Another One of the many traditions here for Independence Day is the torch run.  We have many traditions leading up to and on independence day on September 15th.

 

Today we lit the torch along with the children at a nearby school called Cein Pain

 

Here we’re singing the national anthem of Guatemala, which is about five minutes.

 

The children from Cein Pain run back with the lit torch, it’s tradition.
