FALLAS in Valencia (2013)





Hello my sweeties~ How are you? (人´∀`).☆.。.:*・
Today I want talk about "Les Falles or Las Fallas"is a traditional celebration held in commemoration of Saint Joseph in the city of Valencia, in Spain.
In one of my past updates I talked about How to do the typical food in "Fallas", spanish Doughnut.

Spanish Doughnuts are very delicious and sweet but have a lot of calories! www Don't eat too much!!
(*´∀`*)ゞ


This is the Valencia's traditional woman dress, is very expensive and very beautiful (Like Kimono Furisode)  but I don't like the traditional Hairstyle www  ( ´ ∀`)

I've never worn one. (Is funny, I have worn Kimono many times but I never worn Valencia's Traditional dress)
"Las fallas" held the 15th to 19th of March. Officially starting the last Sunday in February with the act of "Crida". Currently, this festival has become a major tourist attraction in Valencia.

There are different speculations regarding the origin of the Falles festival. One suggests that the Falles started in the Middle Ages, when artisans disposed of the broken artifacts and pieces of wood they saved during the winter by burning them to celebrate the spring equinox.

The Fallas Monument usually have a satirical theme about current issues,  generally consist of one central figure or composition of several meters high, the largest was of over 30 meters, surrounded by numerous figures of cardboard, polyurethane, supported by a wooden frame. Included written in Valencian Lenguage explaining the significance of each design, always critical and satirical.






On the final night of "Las Fallas" is called "La cremà" (the burning) around midnight on March 19, the "Fallas" are burnt as huge bonfires.




I hope you will come someday to Valencia and enjoy the Fallas
 I promise you is a great experience \(⌒▽⌒)/
