A READING

Ecuador traditions are a mixture between the Spanish colonialism, the Roman Catholic Church and the Ecuadorian traditions of pre-Columbian Indians.

THe Inti Raymi for example is an important Indian celebration and it means The Sun's celebration and harvest. This tradition is practiced mainly on the highlands of Ecuador.

On November the 1st and 2nd the Dia de los Difuntos (Day of the Dead) is commemorated. Every family in Ecuador goes to the cemeteries to leave flowers and visit the family members who have died.

Indians have the tradition of taking food into the cemeteries to symbolically feed the dead. A drink called the Colada Morada (a thick blackberry-fruit drink) is served during these dates.
