San Juan Puerto Rico Christmas Spirit


We went to Old San Juan on Christmas day.   From Rincon it's only a 2 hour drive if there's no traffic.  We arrived around 7 am.  The streets were empty and cold.  Not even the pigeons  were moving.
We shot photograph after photograph.  There were a few homeless persons already asking for money.   We gave out a few Christmas dollars.
Around 10 am we heard singing in the distance: Christmas Carolers.
We found them singing and giving out food.  They sang near the parks where homeless slept.  This church group returns every Christmas.  We followed them for a few songs.  They sang traditional Puerto Rican Christmas songs and gospel music with Spanish lyrics.
Their singing invoked the Christmas spirit to Old San Juan.
