  • Las Sevillanas La Sevillana es una canción folklórica procedente de la Seguidilla manchega que se ha ido aflamencando. La Sevillana nace para acompañar al Baile. Se baila en pareja, en tandas o series de 4 sevillanas. Cada una de las Sevillanas tiene TRES partes. Actualmente cada vez hay más Academias de Sevillanas. Antes se bailaba en los patios o casas de vecinos, también llamados corrales. En las romerías y en las ferias se ha bailado siempre, aunque últimamente hay un mayor número de gente que conoce los pasos de este baile.

EL DIA DE REYES Today is the Three Wise Men's day!!!In Spain today is the day when the children receive their christmas presents. But instead of comming from Papa Noel, the presents come from the three Wise Men who, as the Christian religion says, they came from orient on the 5th January's night to give some presents to Jesus(baby). That presents where: Gold, mirra and inciense. Nowadays, on the 5th January's night, children let the Three Wise Men a glass of milk and some biscuits for them to take some energies in their long travel. Next day (6th January), they wake up in the early morning to open their presents, which are standing under the christmas tree.
Feliz dia de Reyes!!!
