Do you celebrate Candelarias Day?

The Fiesta de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria or Fiesta in Honor of the Virgen de la Candelaria, is a popular festival celebrated by Catholics, in honor of the Virgen de la Candelaria. The Candelaria festivity is on February 2 and in some places it lasts for several days, generally because it is the patron saint of the place.

One day before San Blas, by the way, for San Blas do you eat the typical blessed bread roll?

We would love to know how you live these holidays. We have a country full of culturally rich traditions and we like you to tell us about your experiences. We know that in each area people live in a different way and exposing it is a way of bringing the way we live it closer to another part of Spanish territory.

In our area we do not have a holiday but this is not why we stop celebrating, we move it to the following weekend and depending on the space in the neighborhood a large bonfire is made where the neighbors spend that evening with a dinner of conviviality, closeness and dances. In these times, it is more difficult to find candles in our town, but there are still some that refuse to get lost.

Apart from the fact that due to the pandemic that we are going through, it is more difficult to celebrate, I think that the great fault of losing these traditions is due to the life we ​​lead, we hardly know our neighbor anymore and it is difficult for us to say hello if we do not meet him face to face on the landing of the stairs, enough to agree to throw a party of this magnitude. Thanks to the neighborhood associations of the town that there are still neighborhoods that celebrate them and we can go visit.

We love this proverb or saying about Candelaria: "When Candelaria cries, winter is outside; when it neither cries nor is it windy, winter is inside; whether it cries or stops crying, half of winter is yet to come." pass". In other words, we are still in winter and there is still cold to go...

At La Flamenca de Borgoña, you know that everything that has to do with our culture and tradition is always welcome because it also helps us to get to know you better and to be able to offer you personalized products with what is ours, what is Spanish.

The rites or celebrations with fires extend throughout the year throughout the Spanish geography, which one do you like best? we read you
