“OCTAVITAS”

(Promise, this is the last one)

Octavas and Octavitas – on January 9th (after the last of the Kings days) and last for eight days. Originally these were more religious in nature and were used to glorify the Reyes and the Christ child.

Coplas were dedicated to the Magi.

Copla: “Se fueron los Reyes con mucha alegría, vienen las octavas – Dios nos de salud para celebrarlas.”

Octavitas began right after the Octavas and were eight more days of continued adoration. These were a prelude to la Cuaresma (Lent).

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
