Huassi Fichay – Housewarming Party December 2008
Even though our new rooms have been finished in July – we neglected the fact that in Ecuador a Huasi Fichay Party is very important. Bad spirits must be sent away and the good spirits don´t come, if you forget to attract them by music and candy. And finally a party with good food contributes to everybody´s happiness!
So on Wednesday, December 3rd 2008 we had a housewarming party, organized by the employees and strictly following Zuleta´s ancient traditions!
The couple with the black painted faces (note the baby on the “womans” back!) is in charge of sending the bad spirits away. Their face is painted to protect themselves from the bad energy. The musicians and the girls with the candy basket kindly ask the good spirits to inhabit the new house.
After cleansing everything we had a catholic mass, afterwards everybody got something to eat to get new energy for the following party with music, dance and (some) liquor.
All together it was a beautiful and very important event and we really appreciate our employees iniciative!
