  • The Patron Saint of women

    good morning to everyone in the Forum, next February 5 is celebrated in my country Santa Agueda, a Christmas martyr from Sicily who lived in the second century. Second they tell the stories was a very beautiful young woman who was martyred for not denying her faith and for many years in Spain she is considered the Patron Saint of woman, so in some towns of Castilla and Leon women´s day is celebrated and mayors for a day, and as is our custom they celebrate parties and dances in honor of women and Santa. Well in my country, the tradition is a bit different because the eve of the party groups of people come together to sing for villages and farmhouse asking for money that is later destined for charity or as in my town that carry gifts to the older people who are in a residence near my town and eat them and celebrate a party with gifts and song. As you can see in the photos in the towns that women send they dress in their most luxurious traditional costumes and dance old dances that they don´t want to forget, and in the photos of my country you can see the choirs of different places and different clothes, but all with some canes called "Makillas" in my lenguage, with which they are accompanied in the songs, some historians assure that the canes come from the old pagan traditions of the winter solstice and it was call to the earth so that He woke up that the spring was coming. Anyway, one way or another the party exist and people participate with love. Regards. RosarioClick image for larger version
