Life in Culebrón is personal view of Spain and Spanish life as seen by a Briton living in a small village in Alicante province.
The other tabs link to similar blogs when I have lived in other places. The TIM magazine is an English language magazine I write articles for.

¡Hosannah!

Palm Sunday is a big do in Spain, the start of Holy Week and the chance for the family to get out and be seen around town. Because I'd gone to see the SEAT 850 I was in Orihuela so I watched the procession there. Lots of dignitaries at the front, everybody waving palm fronds or carrying small shaped bits of palm leaf. It was a splendid sunny day. Nice event. Children seemed to be at the centre of it. Everywhere, proud parents, wearing their finery, snapped pictures of their children holding bits of twig.
