1/6/2005: Guatemalan "burning of the devil"
xant Thursday Jan 6 02:38 PM
Also it seems unlikely that setting the devil on fire would result in a destination of heaven.

Looks to be another one less than half a block away. I wonder how many are in a given neighborhood...

the second one is a detroit pistons fans' party. easy to mistake, though.

The devil lives in hell. This puny fire is probably like a cold shower to him.

It's just another pagan/xtian mutation/fusion, move along.

What the hell? I'll bet the Devil made them do it.

Every time someone mentions Guatemal I'm reminded of something George Carlin said:

Thank you. I've only seen that once, but did think it was cute.

If that's the devil in the foreground getting roasted, I wonder whose effigy is getting torched in the background.

His evil twin.

Thats a cool image even if the heat appears to be turned up to the max. One of the best looking devils I've ever seen. If he makes it to heaven, I may still have a chance.

So, if there's a Chinese custom of burning paper representations of things in order to give the real deal to the deceased ancestors, and they are right about that ... what happens when you burn a paper mache devil?
