on the eve of December 11, 2018
along V. Rama avenue, Cebu City
where Joseph, the Holy Child Jesus and the Virgin Mary
were paraded from and to the Guadalupe Church.
Devotees along the route lighted their candles
in front of their houses or stores
to celebrate the event
with some even preparing fireworks.
On the following day December 12,
the Blessed Virgin Mary was again paraded
but this time, just around the Guadalupe Church.
Any visitor could tell how religious and devoted
Cebuanos are to Catholicism
by witnessing thousands of devotees
who traversed long roads and huge crowds
during solemn processions.
