there are more people here today than there are in summer!
I didn't realize at first - but there is definitely something going on, Neil! Big decorations at San Francisco just provided a light show and I think the balloon seller from Sanremo wandered on the Avenida de la Constitución.
maybe this could be the reason.6th of December - Constitution day in Spain. This is a National holiday, but is only celebrated with official events.8th of December - Imaculada Concepcin. This is a national holiday celebrating the patron of Spain, la Imaculada Concepcin. In Sevilla this event is celebrated near the Cathedral on Plaza del Triunfo with a big religious procession.
is there a local holiday today in Seville, everywhere seems busy?
Better late than never! lol
Welcome on board Deanne, LOL!
Ohhh, I see, lol. I must of missed the post. Doh.
I give up!Just joking Deanne! It's making me laugh thou. Morning Gwynn.
Lol, Deanne. I am sad you didn't win! I would have enjoyed meeting on this square! :) I think Neil was inviting you to join the rest of us offline, though. :)
Yes Neil, saw it, that's what gave me the idea of getting a ticket too, thought I'd try to increase our chances. :D
DEANNE!!!!!! look down the listing at Gwynn's message from 4-5 days ago?
Sorry guys, my euromillions ticket was a bust!!! Will keep trying though, would be hilarious for us all to meet up for a drink (or three) in this square! :D
Indeed - now we are just missing Deanne. :)I love the lights here. And there was another big crowd gathered in the afternoon - don't know why, though.
