WRITING ABOUT CHRISTMAS I had lots of fun last Christmas. All my family: cousins, uncles, aunts had dinner in my grandparents’ house on Christmas Eve. Father Christmas took me a Play Station 2 game and controls, a pyjama, a police station and a Simpsons chess game. The three Wise Men Eve I went out for the parade with my parents. My favorite Wise Man, Gaspar, took me a transformer set, a remote control car, a Real Madrid pencil case and two jigsaws.

WHAT I LIKE MOST Last afternoon, we had a lot of fun at home. We free Chipy, my squirrel in my dining room. He hid under the sofa, under the table and then under the chair. He bit the wires and finally he jumped in the cage. 3rd grade. Huete.

CHRISTMAS I started my holidays on December the 22nd. On Christmas I have made lot of things, but above all I have played a lot. In the mornings I made my homework, I studied and then I played. On Christmas Eve I went to another town called La Peraleja to have dinner to my grandparents’ house. After dinner, we went to my cousin’s house to see if Father Christmas had come. He brought me a film about Wizards. The rest of the days I was studying and reading. On New Years’ Eve my cousins came to have dinner and eat the twelve grapes. On January the 3rd we celebrated my grandparents’ golden weddings, because they got married 50 years ago. This year I couldn’t see the Three Wise Men Parade because it was raining, but they brought me a lot of presents.

MY CHRISTMAS On December 22nd our Christmas holidays start. I always stay in my village because my family lives here. These holidays it has been raining every day. Every year in my grandpa’s house we decorate the Christmas tree. When my mother was younger, my grandpa cut a tree from the woods and they decorated it. This year my teacher has been a good teacher and we haven’t got homework, so I spent my free time reading and studying. This year we have bought more candies and chocolate than ever. On Christmas Eve, we have dinner at my grandma’s house, with my cousins. After dinner we came back to my house and my parent drunk champagne. On New Year’s Eve I was having dinner with my cousins in my grandma’s house. This year the Three Wise Men bring me money, colony and table games. Christmas is my favorite Festival!

CHRISTMAS On Christmas holidays I had fun and I had the chance to enjoy many things. I played, I did my homework, I was with my family and I saw the Three Wise Men. On December the 24th I had dinner with my grandparents, my parents and my aunt, and Father Christmas came around with many gifts for all. I really had fun. On December the 31st, I had dinner with my grandparents in Huete. I was playing with my cousin who lives there. After having dinner, at twelve o’clock, we had grapes and we congratulated all the family because of the New Year, and I really had fun too.

OUR

TRADITIONS

We celebrate Saint Sebastian. Our patron Saint Sebastian was born in Narbonne (France) in 256 and died in 288. He was a Roman soldier. Maximiliano condemned him to death. It is celebrated on January 20th and he is the protective patron of pests and illness in many cities and villages. These festivities are celebrated in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, El Salvador and in Spain, in Andalucia, Aragon and Castilla La Mancha. Here in Villalba del Rey the dancers are dancing from the street of the square to the hermitage, and when they come to the hermitage they say poems to Saint Sebastian. At the end of the procession people throw rockets (fireworks).

CHRISTMAS In Christmas we had a fun time. When it snowed in our village we did snowmen. We skated in the frozen streets. In the fountain of the square the water was frozen. Father Christmas gave us money and lots of presents. The Three Wise Men gave us remote-controlled cars, clothes, chocolates and dolls. 2nd Cycle. Villalba del Rey.

Christmas At Christmas in our village people put a Nativity scene at the door of the Town hall that it is in the square. Also people put on lights of colors in the streets. Besides on some balconies people hung up a fabric with the picture of Baby Jesus. In our village it is typical to go to the midnight mass on December 24th at twelve o'clock at night. Some years ago this night people switched of the lights in the church and they let go a rooster. For New Year's Eve on December 31st the families joined to have dinner and celebrated the New Year taking twelve grapes. Later they went away to a party in the disco of the village. Finally the day before The Three Wise Men´s Day, that is to say, on January 5th it celebrated a cavalcade where parents disguised themselves as Kings and gave candies to all the boys and girls. Later gifts are distributed in the church to all those who take part in the cavalcade.
