Some chilean traditions

Religious festivities in Chile are frequent and fascinating events, with ritual processions and dances that demonstrate the synthesis of numerous traditions.

The celebration of the corn, the cherry, the chicha or the festival of the watermelon, are joined by gastronomic celebrations that revolve around sea and earth products, popular games and songs.

Chileans supposedly eat the second largest amount of bread in the world, so it would only be suitable that they have a favourite bread, which is the marraqueta.
