Feliz Navidad

Well Christmas is here and the year has nearly come to an end. Time seems to pass so quickly and despite our relaxed environment, the days never seem long enough. The weather is bright and warm during the day but cool and frosty on a night time. The Christmas festivities in and around Ribadesella and fairly low-key but never-the-less interesting to see and very different to our time in England. We have friends staying this week which has given us the opportunity to visit a few pre-romanesque churches in the Oviedo district. The picture is of San Miguel de Lillo, a beautiful church from the 9th century AD. The fountain in Ribadesella has been decorated with lights and traditional music and dancing has entertained the small number of tourists that have travelled here for the Christmas break.
The is no Boxing day in Spain and the main holiday is for the Epiphany on January 6th when the three wise men deliver the presents (not Santa Clause). Luis and I wish all our friends and Family a happy and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2008. Feliz Navidad.
