To me, one of Bogotá's prettiest and most touching traditions is the annual Noche de las Velitas, or Night of the Little Candles, which symbolically inaugurates the Christmas season. Bogotanos, particularly in La Candelaria, put lighted candles in doorways, windowsills and sidewalks.
Candles on La Plaza del Chorro, where Bogotá was founded.
El Callejon del Embudo in La Candelaria.
Children light candles by a doorway.
Candles in a church doorway.
