I found out what all the crazy fireworks going off today was...... they ARE celebrating the Señor de los milagros (Lord of miracles).
From everything I read and was told about today (i dont think i really understand it) but señor de los milagros is Jesus.
But, as we saw.... they are parading Jesus around Ixtapaluca for the next three days. But Jesus is still on the cross.... He is not alive but very bloody. very dead.
I am glad I serve the Jesus that is ALIVE and ascended into heaven!
With that said, they do put on a show for this day. Covering the streets that they march the señor de los milagros down in colorful decorations etc.
