Did you know?
That many years ago, beautiful girls where sent to die in volcanoes?
Apparently, that’s right! In Mexico and Nicaragua, the people believed that volcanoes were where their gods lived. Thus, to make their crops better and their harvest fruitful each year, they would have a young, beautiful girl sacrifice themselves as the people’s gift to the gods.
This case was also the legend of Mt. Pinatubo, where the people believed that a god lived inside the volcano. They were disappointed when the volcano erupted and were convinced that their god abandoned them.
