    Default My work of December

    In my country on December 24 we celebrate the day of Olentzero who is a woodcutter who lives in the highest mountain of EuskalHerria ( Basque country ) at that day goin down to the villages to bring gift to the children, same as his Santa Claus, and in each town a party is celebrated, in my own a parade with mythological characters and the Olentzero is celebrated though the medieval streets until arriving at the Church Square, in the parade my four GGK participate and one of then I had to make a white robe with hand painted flowers, good to her and two friends that their mothers did not know how to do or did not have time. Well after telling them a bit about our oldert traditions I want to show you some pictures of my GD and her friends with the suit of Lamia a woman with duck feet who lived in the rivers, my GD is the one the right, and another pictures of my four GGK in their parade costumes, one of Monk, another of Sun,third of Momotxorro, be mythologico that protected the Lamia and the Witches and finally the Lamia. I hope you like it and thank you for lookingClick image for larger version.

    Beautiful costumes. Just curious - why the giant combs are being held by each of the girls.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Thanks for sharing. These are pretty costumes and lovely great grandchildren. I like the idea of this tradition. I am certain the children enjoy the parades.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
