Feliz Navidad

Christmas is a very religious time in Spain. The feast of Immaculate of Conceptions marks the beginning of the holiday. Boys dress up to dance and sing in the Los Seises in front of the Seville Cathedral. Families gather on the night before Christmas or Nochebuena to play, give thanks and eat traditional treats like turron.

Unlike like most cultures where there is one person to distribute gifts, children in Spain view the Three Wise Men as gift bearers. On Janurary 6th, they take out straw and barely placed in shoes by children. The straw filled shoes represent the weary camels that carry riders. The morning after The Eve of Epiphany the Three Wise Men place presents in the shoes for children to enjoy. Another animal believed to be sacred here is the cow. It is said that the cow breathed on baby Jesus to keep Him warm through the night.

Articles on Christmas in Spain did not say the size of the shoes where presents are stored, but if this is the actual size of a child’s shoe jewellery would be the perfect gift. It is small and meaningful. So leave glass beads in emerald or a buffalo leather keyring.
