My memories of our Spanish Christmas celebrations
We lived in the mountains to the north of Madrid for seventeen years except for breaks for me to look after my mother for six years, at first part time and then full time.
Our Christmas celebrations in Spain with our friends were fabulous, going to each other’s houses and enjoying the wonderful blend of traditions of a very eclectic group from Spain, Italy, Ireland, England and South America. There was no early to bed, as we rarely got started on the Cava and Tapas before 9 p.m and usually sat down an hour later. Dancing would begin at midnight and rarely were we in bed before 2 or 3 in the morning.
