Dear friends with a tradition that dates back 50 years half a century again in our beloved "Cerro Ávila" shines for all Caracas "La Cruz de Ávila", marking the arrival of the month of December and the soon advent of "Child God", in this beautiful way is given formal start of Christmas in the Capital City "Caracas la Sultana de Ávila", "Arrived December already the cross, announcing to the world that Jesus came is".
Again I remember from this column to Dr. OSCAR MACHADO ZULOAGA, that God has you in his glory, one of the most ardent pioneers, enthusiast and fan of this beautiful tradition Caracas, I remember when we spent hours rehearsing to sing in the lighting of the "cross of el Ávila", precisely the Aguinaldo "CRUZ de AVILA" custom which quickly matched to the power of the "Arbolito de Chacao" where traditionally was home to the Christmas festivities than it was for him then the family of C.A. LA ELECTRICIDAD DE CARACAS.
The cross of el Ávila became the symbol of the Christmas of the Gran Caracas, filled with hope for children, women and men in thousands of homes Caracas, decreed in Caracas that it's already December who sends.
We have faith and hopes ask all together the child God to illuminate the world but mostly one families, to achieve a come 2014 totally promising and full of hope, where dreams and opportunities materialize, where peace, where they eradicate the robberies and attacks against life to thrive, where justice is blind and proceed as, where the effort is gratifying, where the assistance centers are equipped with medicines, equipment and above all suitable staff so take good care of our health, where the policy is minimized, where corruption is eradicated, where our leaders understand once and for all "that VENEZUELA is a and is of all".
Heart I wish them without exception or discrimination of class, creeds, genders, politicians, friends, enemies free, finally everyone a "Merry Christmas and happy year 2014", than the God bless you and our dear and beloved Cruz Ávila, reach all your homes and that stay forever and always illuminating them. Our children are distant in others, that God the protect, the care and the bless you always, that we've lost our beings dear, deeper solidarity in difficult times we have to go and remember without them, good to all the family of the world whole and especially of my homeland my always loved Venezuela I say "Glory to God in the heights and peace in land to the men of good will".
