Etzalqualiztli (Feast of the Corn)

May 24th to June 12th

Presiding Deity: Tlaloc and Chalchihuitlicue

Traditional Celebration: This month signals the ending of the dry season and the coming of the rains. For this reason, Etzalqualiztli was a great festival to the water related deities, particularly Tlaloc. Offerings of jade were made to Tlaloc and his serving tlaloque. The jades were thrown into the lake waters for them, along with human hearts. Jade would be hung above the waters of the lake in hopes that Tlaloc would make the water rise that high. Fresh reeds would be brought to the temples for the celebration, and with these reeds new decorations for the water deities and new mats for the temples would be made. The priests of Tlaloc would fast for four days during this time, letting blood each day. At the finish of the priests’ fast, they would take a series of ritual baths in the waters of the lake.
