Salvadorans are especially fond of setting up decorative crèches with blinking lights. Salvadorans have absorbed American secular representations of Christmas.
Many of the cofradías also sponsor Christmas-related displays and feasts. In Izalco, the Cofradía Niño Dios de María hosts a large Nativity scene in the front room of the majordomo’s house. The Cofradía del Niño Pepe holds its feast for five weeks, December 8-January 12.
