Christmas in El Salvador sparkles with creches and secular displays

Salvadorans are especially fond of setting up decorative crèches with blinking lights. Salvadorans have absorbed American secular representations of Christmas.   

Many of the cofradías also sponsor Christmas-related displays and feasts. In Izalco, the Cofradía Niño Dios de María hosts a large Nativity scene in the front room of the majordomo’s house. The Cofradía del Niño Pepe holds its feast for five weeks, December 8-January 12.
