Easter demons, San Miguel style

easter-demonsCheryl and Lloyd Cooke chose to stay in Mexico long enough to enjoy the Easter celebrations and I can see why. The Mexicans make big, colourful, papier maché effigies of all kinds of devils, witches, capitalist pigs and other baddies, parade them around in the streets and then blow them to smithereens with firecrackers.

I think Lloyd said the effigies are about 9 feet tall. There are more short videos here.
