Baña de Santo Niño de Ternate
(The Bathing of the Holy Child Jesus of Ternate)
(Ang Pagpapaligo sa Mahal na Poong Santo Niño de Ternate)
 
December 31, 2015
The Baña de Santo Niño de Ternate (The Bathing of the Holy Child Jesus of Ternate) is a tradition which dates back to 1663. This annual tradition (Ang Pagpapaligo sa Mahal na Poong Santo Niño de Ternate) is being held every 31st day of the month of December. The Santo Niño de Ternate is taking a bath and changes his dress for the upcoming town fiesta (of the Municipality of Ternate, Cavite) on January 5-6. The image will again change his vestments on January 5, after the caracol and holy mass in his honor.
One of its old traditions is that giving the Santo Niño a bath annually before the New Year’s Eve. It was believed that the water that was used to bath the Santo Nino can cure many illnesses, where the perfumed water used to bathe the Santo Niño is placed in bottles and distributed to the faithful/devotees.

Caracol/Karakol/Religious Procession Dance

The Caracol Festival in honor of the Santo Niño de Ternate
Karakol is a religious procession dance performed during fiestas. It features a fluvial procession performed by folk music played by a brass band or a recorded music(mobile sound system) and street dancing by children, teenagers, and women in fancy dress and hat. . As the image of the Holy Child was brought out of the church, the karakol will start with a parade of performers (usually devotees, and locals) going to the town proper while dancing to effervescent music to show their sincere devotion to the Holy Child and will end at Maragondon River(in Barangay San Jose) for the fluvial procession.
The image of the Santo Niño de Ternate is said to have been brought by Jesuit missionaries from the Group of Moluccas Islands in Indonesia (also known as Spice Islands in History books) to Cavite where Malay settlers, including the Sepoys from India, were given settlements and enjoined to keep a lookout on seafaring marauders.
The Holy Child Jesus of Ternate Caracol conducts every January 5, the eve of the Patron’s feast for the Catholics and for the Aglipayans, they conduct the Caracol on every Feast Day of The Holy Child Jesus of Ternate (January 6)

HERMANIDAD DE SANTO NIÑO DE TERNATE
(Confraternity of the Holy Child Jesus of Ternate)
 
January 24, 2016
Hermanidad is a Spanish word which means Brotherhood. The feast of the Holy Child Jesus as celebrated by the people of Ternate, Cavite and devotees was led by a Hermano, an individual chosen to lead the festivities. For the said event, the Hermano would be a Boy. It will start with a Holy Mass and then followed by a Procession of the Santo Niños and the patron saint Santo Niño de Ternate. Hermanidad is a regular practice among many church organizations and the Hermanidad dedicated to the Santo Niño conducts annually on every third Sunday of January (The feast of the Santo Niño/Holy Child) for Catholics and for the Aglipayans, a week after.
