Christmas Tree and nativity scene.
For Christmas in Spain, some people put a tree in their houses, and they decorate it with Christmas decorations. People also put in their houses the nativity scene, with all the figures of it, it’s beautiful, because people put it like they want. There are nativity scenes also in the church and in the city there’re a lot of exhibitions. The nativity scene is a religious tradition.

Christmas meals Typical Spanish

finally to finish the dinner we delight us with some sweet, typical for this time of year.
All this together with the best Spanish drinks, and not just wine, but also champagne and cider.
This celebration is a tradition that has its origins in the legend of the the king Erode who ordered to kill all the children under two with the aim of assassinating the Child Jesus. Also this popular festival has a pagan origin, as the prelude to the Carnival.The wildness and joy were the main stars, because everything was allowed.
One of the best known jokes are, dolls on the back of someone as a sign of mockery. The media publishes false news. The next day, the media reveales the truth.
