On December 7th people celebrate the famous "Quema del Diablo" – Burning of the Devil, a purification ritual before the start of Christmas Celebrations. Dancers dressed with red and black costumes will dance around the bonfires. The character is not necessarily evil; some pieces will be decorated with diverse symbols to represent different kind of personalities, good or evil. The vivid pale blue painted skin is highlighted black painted eyebrows, moustaches and beard. The nose is decorated with a lovely green lizard. The red eyes and enormous mouth with teeth and a large red leather tongue showing confers the mask a scary look. Leather ears and the huge red and green painted horns magnify the evil look of the character.
