T stands for Saints Cosmas and Damian

Hello T-Gang!

How are you my friends? Hope you all are well. Thanks so much for your lovely comments last Tuesday. I always write mine on Sundays so I am sorry. I am always late but better late than never huh !

 Today we celebrate Saints Cosmas and Damian here and we give children bags of candy with the saints effigy printed on them. 
Saints Cosmas and Damian are considered the protectors of children in Brazil. 

 Yummy Yummy I love candies!

 Some people invite children to have sweets at their own homes. Others give bags of sweets in the streets. It's a tradition and children have fun. September 27th or Saints Cosmas and Damian's day was one of my favourite days when I was a child.

Here are some faces I created for 29 Faces challenge. Although I  had drawn some, these are digital because I have been  playing with a new drawing software. I love drawing and paintings softwares. I don't have Photoshop. Most of times I use drawing or painting softwares to create my art.

Face 30 - this one is a courtesy;

Hope you have a magical Tuesday. Don't forget to visit Elizabeth and our T-gang!

    HAPPY T-Day my friend!

  4. I love the faces, especially the one with coffee! But they are all wonderful.

    Here in the States, we don't have anything like Saints Cosmas and Damian's day, but I'm sure these children are having a wonderful time. The only time we give candy is Halloween, so these children get a special treat and get to learn about Saints, too.

    Thanks for sharing this special day, the photos of the children, and the beautiful faces with us for T this Tuesday.

  5. A super post to read and see the wonderful photos, the children all look so happy, its a lovely way to celebrate a special day.
    Happy Tuesday.
