Abstract: One gets accustomed during festa time the usual array of flower bouquets offered by local societies or some individual devotees, in honour of the patron saint during parish celebrations. This is a long established folkloristic manifestation and a custom of our colourful folk life. In 1992, there was a metre high model of the parish church of Saint Peter, covered all over with seashells.
