Celebrating Candlemas day with Apafhdem

Erik y su amiga el Dia de la Candelaria en Apafdhem

On February 2nd Olympus Tours Foundation accompanied the young people of Apafhdem to eat tamales, a popular traditional food in Mexico on Candelmas day, also known as the Virgin of Candelaria ´s Day.

 According to Christian beliefs this is the day to celebrate  the Virgin Mary’s purification and is the same day when the infant Christ was presented before the temple in Jerusalem. The tamales eaten during the festivities symbolize the offering Joseph and Mary brought to the temple when presenting the child Jesus.

Apafhdem is a non profit organization in Cancun that provides occupational opportunities to intellectually disabled people.
