The usual Patron Saint festivities from late November until her Día de la Inmaculada Concepcion on
December 8th are suspended, but the priest will celebrate a Mass with a
holy rosary each day for each of the groups and organizations, according
to a schedule.
Saturday, Dec. 12 Dia de Guadalupe, Patron Saint of Mexico
Dec 13-14 Peaking of the Geminid meteor shower--This is one of the two
best showers of the year (the other is August Perseids). The sky will be
dark all night (new moon) & the largest numbers will be visible
around 2a (when the radiant point is highest in the sky). But you should
see them from mid evening until dawn, weather permitting. There should
be a 'smattering' of meters the nights before & after, and it builds
to a peak the week before. This shower features meteors that tend to be
bold, white and quick, with up to 50-150 per hour when peaking in
optimal conditions, like this year's moonless sky. On Dec. 11,12,13, the
slender lunar crescent and planet Venus will rise in the eastern sky at
or near dawn.
Posadas Navidenas Dec 16-24 will presumably be suspended along with the two decorated Caravans.
Monday, Dec. 21-Solstice
Tuesday, Dec 22-Dark predawn hours-Ursid Meteors (active Dec 17-26, much less than Geminids)
Thursday, Dec. 24 Noche Buena--Many families celebrate, so some businesses may close early and the last ferry crossing could be suspended, as well as the first one on Christmas morning.
Friday, Dec 25- Christmas
Dec 27-Jan 10-Quadrantid meteors, which will peak Jan 2-3, but the moon will interfere.
Monday, Dec 28-Dia de los Santos Innocentes--Similar to "April Fool's Day"
Thursday, Dec 31-New Year's Eve events will presumably be digital & public events suspended.
