We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2015
Christmas in Spain is lived in many different ways depending mainly of each family’s customs. What’s common is that we take the opportunity to be with the family . The Christmas Eve dinner , lunch on Christmas Day , New Year’s Eve dinner or snack of Epiphany(6th of January) are occasions for encounter.
From an anthropological point of view what is being celebrated is the change of station or rather , the Winter Solstice .
In most traditional Catholic families they live Christmas from a spiritual point of view focusing on celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. We build a Christmas scene at home.
