The Weirdest Festival in Nicaragua: Blessing the Dogs

The last two months have been wickedly serious around here — remember my body issues and depression? Before you conclude that I’m Debbie Downer, it’s time for some shits and giggles. Let’s have a laugh!

More than two months ago, I experienced one of the weirdest festivals — both surreal because of the details and it was the day my wallet was stolen. The stolen wallet is old news and I bought a pretty one from Soy Nica to replace it (check them out for artisan, hand-made products).

About two weeks before Semana Santa (that’s Easter celebration in your part of the world), an itty bitty festival called “Blessing the Dogs’ happens in Masaya, Nicaragua. That’s the city between Granada and Managua.
