WATCH: No Festa, No Problem? People Are Re-Creating Hilarious Live Versions of Statues

Some are over-the moon at the fact that festas have been cancelled this year, and some are still trying to process that the one thing they look forward to every year will not be taking place. Festas are cancelled for the year 2020, but no matter whether you love it or hate it, the festa spirit lives on in ‘Vari Hajjin’, a hilarious Facebook page that is asking people to re-create fest statues and send them in.

Two have so far stolen the show with an uncanny, modern day resemblance of your typical festa vara.

It started off with this live statue still seeking an appropriate name: “Another vara which will be used for the first time in 2021,  specifically made for people not to feel too conscious of the weight they put on in 2020 because of COVID-19.”

Vara oħra li se tiġi mzanzna fis-sena 2021 magħmula apposta biex in-nies ma jħossuhomx konxji tal-piż li tellghu fl-2020 minħabba Covid 19. Komplu…… San???????

And sure enough, suggestions started flooding in. From ‘San Inqered’ to ‘San Nhaxnek’ and ‘San Nidendel’, the people truly delivered.

With over 40k views in less than 24 hours, soon enough, another followed.

Everyone, meet ‘San Nsajru’.

Vara oħra din id-darba San Sajru 😊

You’ve got to hand it to them, the resemblance is uncanny!

The page is only a week or so old, but there’s still more where these came from, with photos of people dressed up as statues.

There’s even footage of children carrying a statue of our ladies of sorrows, which is one of the cutest things we’ve seen all week!

What a way to beat the self-isolation boredom huh…

Vara numru wieħed. "San Gerfex jeħles lil kelb tiegħu minn ħalq il- lifa"
