Mexican traditional candles! I remember being a little girl at grandmas house in Fresno during a lighting storm and being so scared the lightning would strike her house. She lit the these candles and put them in the window to protect us! She told me the candles would keep the lightening away and It worked! So when my girls were little I did it to protect are home here in Corvallis!
"An eagle with a snake in its mouth recognizes the Aztec heritage of Mexico. According to Aztec legend, the gods advised the Aztec people to build their capital on the location in which they saw an eagle, perched on a prickly pear tree, eating a serpent. They built their capital, Tenochtitlan, on what is now the main plaza of Mexico City."
