They chant certain sayings and the people at various houses chant back verses meaning NO. Finally they come to the right house and they are let in. There is a party with Pinatas and goodie bogs called bolas. The children who walk behind the burro are called pastores and pastoras, meaning shephards and shephardesses. They carry baculas, which means walking staffs or faroles, meaning paper lanterns. It is great fun. Anyone can walk along with them.
