Overview of festivals and celebrations in Spain
Unlike other holidays, Christmas in Spain is celebrated at home, in a narrow family circle. Spaniards always cook a festive duck, seafood, and sweets. After the family feast, they leave the house and gather at the Christmas tree, where they have fun all night long. At this time, Papa Noel comes to the house and leaves gifts under the tree or in special shoes. In the Basque country, children are congratulated by another character, Olentzero, who is dressed in simple homespun clothes and carries a flask with red wine. It is customary to meet New Year on the main square of the city. You need to eat 12 grapes and make 12 wishes while the clock is striking twelve. After the New Year celebration, families go home and sit down at the festive table.
