Till midnight: After dinner we sing to Infant Jesus and we play the ronca (zabumba) while waiting midnight to gifts exchange.zabumba After this we all go to the Cock Mass.
Cock Mass In Campo Maior, like in others regions we have the Cock Mass. This Mass is celebrated in the night of 24th to 25th, at midnight. We dont have an explanation for its name. Usually the people tell that it has this name because the cock sings at midnight and also at midday, and for this reason they call it cock mass.
