Judas got blasted today. Actually, 20 papier-maché Judas dolls blew up, except for the Devil. Ironically, he was the only doll that wouldn’t go down.
It’s a tradition here in San Miguel to blow up Judas on Easter. A big crowd gathered in the jardin to watch the colorful, lifesize paper dolls explode. The guy who set them on fire did so with the cigarette he was smoking. Classic.
I’ve YouTubed two short videos below. I have to say I loved the color combinations. One of the dolls wore a white suit with a fuschia shirt underneath. I would very much like to see F in this particular ensemble. He’s not so keen on fushcia.
