Hi there. Please go back to this image page above and add source information. Where did you get this image? With no source info, the image will likely be deleted. Thanks. texugo 08:15, 24 October 2011 (EDT)

Thanks for your contributions![edit]

I admit, I had never heard of Tomohon until just a few weeks ago. Now, I know a good deal about the city because of your excellent contributions. I'm particularly happy with the photos you've posted (other than the issue with the map that Texugo addresses above).

All the best,

Ikan Kekek, I also want to thank you for your contribution in correcting the sentences. I am not an native speaker of English. I realize there are many errors in the posting. Thank God for your correction now, it looks nicer. Thank you! Marcben 00:54, 1 November 2011 (EDT)

Oh by the way, about your question Does the Christmas Season ends in January 31st? perhaps in December 31st? The answer is yes, it does. January 31st is the end of all holiday season including the Christmas. That's when all people undo the Christmas tree and remove the Christmas decoration from the house as well as Christmas Celebration from the Catholic. In the Church Holiday, we call it the end of the Epiphany. In the reading, I also describe a day called Kuncikan. That's the end of the holiday season. This kuncikan is celebrated as a thanksgiving that we can celebrate both big holidays, Christmas and New Year again.

This Kuncikan isn't celebrated only by the people in Tomohon. The people in Tataaran, in Minahasa celebrate with an activity they called Pasiar Bendi, literally means Go Around with Horse Cart. If January 31st falls on Sunday, the celebration will be very big and festive because everyone will crowd the main road. In Tomohon, it is celebrated by an activity called Figura where the participant dress in certain figure, as man dresses in woman clothes, clown, kindergarten student and so on. That shows that normal live has return again. Mmm.. Marcben 01:06, 1 November 2011 (EDT)
