Sundays are an odd day, whether you are starting work tomorrow, getting the children's things ready to go back to school.... yay!! I do believe Sundays are a family type day to have fun together and relax, this morning here in Orihuela was the day of Reyes which is a celebration of the three kings (the 3 wise men to some) giving presents to Jesus. last night there was festivities in each town, parades and excitement. Very similar to our Christmas morning, the children here wake up to find presents left next to the shoes they put out the evening before, leaving water and nougat out for the wise men to build strength for their continued journey.
A lovely occasion i do admit, your probably asking why we celebrate when we have Christmas day. Well being in Spain and having our daughter in a Spanish school she learns about these traditions from her friends and of course we do the parental duty so she is not left out and do something similar for her, in my case save 3 presents from Christmas then hide them round the house until she finds them and then she can open them and play that is as far as our celebration went for today, In the afternoon we watched the film "The Greatest Showman" which was amazing I highly recommend this film. Then now its the rush around making sure Alexis has everything for her first school day tomorrow of 2019 of course.
They say January is the most depressive month of the year, festivities over, going back to work, but a little cheesy quote from the film, be unique be you.
