    Noche Azul de Esperanza Despide el Año Viejo

    As the New Year and holiday festivities approach us, The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center along with artists Azul Barrientos, Bett Butler, Joe?l Dilley, and Nina Rodriguez will bid farewell to the old year and welcome the new.

    From Japan’s Bonenkai or “forget-the-year parties” aimed at forgetting the problems and concerns of the previous year to Brazil’s sacrificial boat filled with jewelry, candles and flowers pushed off from the beach of Rio de Janeiro to the ocean in hopes of bringing health, wealth and happiness, the end of the year signifies many things to different people. The old year also witnesses many religious holidays that combine beliefs and traditions into ceremonies or practices. In the state of Veracruz, the Christmas tradition known as La Rama shows people decorating ramas or branches with small paper lights, orange peels, and paper chains but unlike a Christmas tree, the Rama is not planted in one particular spot but rather processes throughout the neighborhood.

    Noche Azul Despide el An?o Viejo will be a night of music bidding farewell to the departing year and reminiscing on cultural traditions from around the world.
