Hispanics have noticed the affinity that children have for the making of noise and have developed the custom of the grito. A leader will call out a question, and the people (especially the younger members) will call out a response.

Here is one from New Mexico:

Quién en esta casa da la luz?


Quién la llena de alegría?


Quién conserva en la fe?


The Eucharistic Chapel in the Cathedral in Santa Fe is dedicated to St. Joseph, and over the reredos is the inscription:

Quién conserva esta casa in la fe? José
