Week That Was From Latin America Photo Gallery

In this Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018 photo, parishioners dress a giant baby Jesus in preparation for "Dia de la Candelaria" or Candlemas Day, at the San Juan Bautista Parish, in Mexico City. According to Christian tradition, Candlemas marks Mary and Joseph's presentation of the baby Jesus in the Temple in Jerusalem. Candlemas is observed 40 days after Christmas, on Feb. 2. Catholics in Mexico celebrate the feast day by dressing their baby Jesus figurines in the finest threads and bringing them to their local church to be blessed. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)
