|Subject: Christmas in Spain|
Hi Ira, I agree on several of your general concepts regarding Spain however
I wish to clarify that Christmas, that is Navidad in Spain and all over
the world is the same day, December 25 th., being the previous night Holly
Night or Nochebuena in Spanish.
I am not an expert in Spanish customs, surely Covadonga and other Spanish
friends will correct me... but I believe that the grapes are eaten on
the night of December 31 st., ...
the Holiday on January 6th that you mentioned , is held to celebrate the
arrival of the
Reyes Magos : Kings Gaspar,
Baltasar and Melchor ...
may be your confusion arises because children get presents on the night
of Jan.5 th
I always enjoy your postings and maybe in the future as the need arises you will care to enlight me in the Jewish Holidays, there I get a little confused too.. Graziella Miami Beach.
