The first day of the year is typically used to recover from the wild and often violent New Year’s Eve festivities. The smaller street parties and public celebrations make this day a calmer and safer time to go out. Many activities are held in Bogota’s Plaza de Bolivar.
Epiphany / Dia de Reyes
This national holiday marks the end of the Christmas season in Colombia. This is the traditional day of gift-giving, and every town in the country puts on a wonderful display of processions, dancing and celebrations.
