I’ve always wanted to draw Fem!Spain so here she is~
she’s dressed in traditional Valencian dress for Las Fallas festival which takes place every year in March in the city of Valencia
*crawls under rock*
I was in Valencia in March and the festival was going on - but forgive me - is this a religious or a folk festival ? It was wonderful with splendid fireworks and parties I adored it!I think that is a mix of religious and folk but I’m not sure. I love the dresses of the girls *.*.ranchelblahWe need your help!
I’m here, don’t worry…
The festival has two parts, one religious, and one traditional, but not religious. The religious one is La Ofrena (the Offering) in wich the Falleros, sorted by Fallas (a sort of clan), parade aroun Valencia until they reach the Plaza de la Virgen where they offer flowers to our patrion saint, La Verge dels Desamparats. There’s so many Fallas that this procesion goes on for three whole days, but meanwhile we do other things, of course.
The non-religious, but traditional part, it’s based on an very old tradition according to wich the carpenters of the city collected the wooden things they, and their neighbors, didn’t use anymore and burned them in the nearest square. Superstition was always there, and it became a ritual to welcome the Spring, to let the old things behind and welcome the new, so people started burning thing connected with bad feelings. Being a tradition among the low class it became a classic to make wooden dummies representing bad politicians, rich people and the most rotten of society, it was a comeback without a jail penalty.
In more modern times we acompany the Ninots (dummies), with satiric short poems in valencian. And that’s basically it.

Yo sólo he votado una vez, lo prometo por el pesebre del niño Jesús.
Lo he sacado de aquí: http://www.elmundo.es/historia.html¿Quiénes son los RETRASADOS que han votado a Felipe el hermoso? -.-.
¿Quiénes son los retrasados que han votado a Felipe V?
No, ahora en serio, en este caso no se, pero en otras ocasiones la mayoría conservadora de este país a visto en Felipe II el baluarte de sus principios ultra-católicos. Es por eso que gusta tanto entre ciertos colectivos.
