Santa Kruzan comes from the word “Santa Kruz” which means “Holy Cross.” The festivity commemorates the search of the Holy Cross by Queen Helena (Reyna Elena) and her son, Constantine. The Holy cross is believed to have been the Cross of Christ in Calvary. St. Helena died asking all Christians to celebrate the discovery of the Cross every May.
