Summary

The text of the article has been structured and three parts: in the first the author deals with the social and anthropological aspects of the festivities; apart from the formal and manifest elements of the festivities, the author especially deals with non-explicit functions and meanings; in the second part, the author strives to characterise candle festivities and their ethnographic models in Extremadura. The author dedicates the last back to reflecting on popular symbols and beliefs related with these festivities.
