La Ofrenda

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

            As soon as I posted yesterday’s blog entry commenting on the dearth of bands and casals passing by the house, the parade began and did not end until well after 11:00 PM.  Today is father’s Day in Spain, El Día de San José, and it is the official end of Fallas.  Tonight is the Cremat when all Ninots will be burned to the ground, with the exception of the two winners that will enter in the Falla Museum.  Things will begin to return to normal for a while and before we know it, Holy Week will be upon us.  Be that as it may, we will enjoy the pause in activity.

            I stayed home yesterday to work on several projects that needed completion and Susan headed off to the casal around 2:00 for lunch followed by a rather intensive photo shoot of the preparation involved in getting the falleras mayors dressed and ready for their participation in the ofrenda. The photos that accompany this brief post will help you understand what is involved in the process.
