Other initiatives that are included on the festivities:
The action unfolds in a clear antagonism between male and female local residents, well represented through the satirical male and female dolls made by the participants. The feast focuses on the judgement of the “compadre” and the judgement of the “comadre”, during which social criticism is done towards the events and activities of individuals and community institutions that took place over the year.
In the end, both the “compadre” and the “comadre” are burned as punishment. This way, the community feels renewed and social tensions are relieved, prepared to begin a new cycle in spring.
Although this type of gathering still happens, is losing some strength and is being replaced by “arranged robberies”. These are scheduled in advance and now it is the robbers who take the delicacies to the party.
