In my country we celebrate Christmas Eve, Christmas day, New Year’s Eve, New Year and the Three Wise Men Day.

In Christmas Eve, we eat a lot of things, like “turrón”, a type of chocolate tablet but done with honey, eggs, almonds… “Polvorones” a type of small cake with sugar, And, for dinner, we eat sometimes soup with meatballs. We eat Spanish Ham too and Cheese.

In my country everybody receives presents by the Three Wise Men (Three imaginary wizards who have more than two thousand years) the sixth of January.

We put the Christmas tree with a Star in the top. We put the barn, where Jesus was born.

We celebrate Christmas Eve with our families. We sing Christmas Carols, and everybody drinks Cava or Sidra.

Hi, my name is Aaron Lidon Angosto. Last year we celebrated Christmas in family,with my mum´s and my father´s family.

We had lunch in my grandmother´s house and after having coffe we sang a Christmas song, and sometimes the adults were playing monopoly and other games.

After we went for a walk for shopping, there were many people dressed as Sheppards and Santa,we always buy together hot chestnuts.

Then we came back to my grandmother’s house, there are two large dogs and we played soccer with them until dinnertime. After dinner we continued singing carols.

The 25th December all my family are going to my grandmother’s house and eat and spend the day together. Everyone must bring a present for another and we play ”invisible friend”.

Hello, my name is Begoña. My past Christmas was celebrated in my uncle’s House with my brothers and my cousins, but in my house we assembled a tree adorned with scoops of colors and lights.  When we arrived at my uncle’s House have just set the table and while we took a snack we expected to those who were missing come. We blessed the table and started eating and when we finished eating my cousin got the tambourine and we started to sing Christmas carols and the older gave the aguinaldo to small cousins.It is a time of joy and to meet the family.

The night of 31st of December we celebrate the Year’s Eve and the beginning of the new year. In Spain is custom to start the year eating twelve grapes, one for each month of the year. People say that if you eat all the grapes during the twelve strokes you’ll have a year full of luck.

Before this celebration, children write letters asking to the Magic Kings the presents that they want to bring them from the East. They receive these presents the night between the 5th and 6th of January.
