The holiday is a reminder of the country’s history and the brave protestors who fought for social reform. The celebration is filled with music, delicious traditional food and drink, and fireworks display in Guatemala City. It is a time for Guatemalans to come together with friends and family to honor their forefathers and keep their legacy alive.
