Skate to mass

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - DESTINATIONS -

If you’re go­ing to be in Venezuela over Christ­mas, pack your roller skates. In Cara­cas, neigh­bour­hoods close their streets to traffic un­til 8am from De­cem­ber 16 to 24, so fam­i­lies can roller skate to early morn­ing mass. Be­fore bed, chil­dren tie a piece of string to their big toe and hang the other end out the win­dow. If they’re not wo­ken by the fire­works and ring­ing bells call­ing wor­ship­pers to mass be­fore dawn, skaters tug­ging on the string surely will.
