On January 17, in Peloche, at dawn, after a night of bonfires, the dancers are responsible for awakening the neighbors to the sound of music, requesting the aguinaldo in exchange for a shot of aguardiente. Then the traditional "migas del santo" in the house of the mayordomo will have breakfast, since at midday noon will start the mass and the dance.
