Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

¡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.
