Once upon a time there was an eleven year old kid called Pablo, he lived in Mexico in a little town where the Mexican tradition was so important. Pablo and his mother were new there so they didn´t know how they would celebrate.

One of the most important traditions in that town was the Candlemas day in which they make a Mexican traditional food called: “tamales”, also everyone that lived there had to make 10 tamales and Pablo´s mom didn’t know how to make them so she sent Pablo to buy some. Pablo searched in the entire town, and finally He founded a little house that sold tamales. The employee was an old woman that didn’t have a great appearance, but anyway He bought them.  He asked for 10 tamales, and the old woman gave him a plastic bag with the tamales in there. When Pablo arrived home he put the tamales in the kitchen and he saw that there were thirteen tamales. He wanted to go back to pay the extra tamales, but when He arrived to the old woman’s house. She wasn’tthere. So He asked the neighbor who lived near to the little house, and He said that no one lived there since many years before, and the old woman who he described, had died thirteen years ago.  When Pablo went back to his house he told everything of his experience to his mother, she was so surprised and scared, so she decided to throw away the tamales and that they had to move out of that little town and never come back again.

Everybody in the little town said that this old woman appeared in that house every Candlemas Day in that town, because she died that day, in that house making Tamales.
