Sånta Marian Kåmalen had a prominent place in this year's Liberation Day parade. She was on more than one float. I don't remember her being this prominent in parades many years ago.
On the beauty queens' float, the earthly queens on the left, the heavenly Queen on the right.
Enough time has passed so that the idea has gotten stronger that Sånta Marian Kåmalen, who has survived a war, several major typhoons and thefts, is our mother who accompanies us through the ups and downs of life, just as she has gone through them.
