They say that, at the time of our grandparents, the arrival of the corn was celebrated in the harvest season. White, yellow, purple, and red, four representatives that give life to the human being, that’s why we must thank God, the holy land, the holy water, the sun, and the moon, because they are the guardians of their growth. That is the importance of continuing with this tradition, to thank the holy corn with candles, atoles, marimba and dancing, and to always have a good harvest That’s how the Q’anjob’ales tell it.
