The streets of K’iche’ Maya town of Chichicastenango in the highlands have long been known for their colorful markets. But each year, the commemoration of All Saints Day marks a change in the streets of the town. It is the beginning of the month and a half festival season which culminates in the yearly festival of the town’s patron saint, Santo Tomás Apóstol.
