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.
