In Ecuador Christmas begins with Advent, a season rich in customs and celebrations. As Christmas draws near, town officials close off certain streets in order to make space for street vendors selling Christmas sweets and trinkets. Many people begin collecting toys, used clothes, and candy to give to poorer families so that their children will also have Christmas presents to open.
