First communion is a big celebration in the life of 8 year old children. Small girls wear white dresses.
They also carry white lilies as a symbol of their innocence (boys carry candles). Girls have garlands (crowns) made of white flowers on their heads.
Communion is celebrated for many weeks after it really happens. Children get expensive gifts.

During Corpus Christi procession, girls in First Holy Communion dresses strew the way with flowers..

It is a special day..
