New Year’s Eve (Nochevieja)
As the clock strikes midnight, those
in Sol, together with the millions
watching on television eat twelve
grapes to bring them luck for the
next twelve months
The festivities certainly do not end after 25th
December! Every year on New Year’s Eve,
thousands of people pack into the Puerta del
Día de los Reyes Magos
Known in the English speaking world as the Epiphany,
the arrival of the Three Kings is defined in Spain by the
huge expectation and the massive celebrations that
revolve around the event.
On 5th January, Cabalgata de los
Reyes Magos takes place and
people crowd the streets to get a
glimpse of the reenactment of the
arrival of the Three Kings into town.
