Canary Day

The flag of the Canary Islands Autonomous Region of Spain

Today, Wedesday, is Canary Day. It’s a big thing here, and the celebrations have started already.
Yesterday most schools had a party for the second half of the morning. Most shops will be shut, except in tourist areas. Expect to see lots of traditional food like gofio and wrinkly pototes, traditional folk music and Canarian sports, like the Shepherd’s Leap.

  1. Merry Xmas. Let all your desires may occur true for yourself and your family and also lets hope your next year or so become successful for everyone us all. Merry Christmas

  2. There seem to be lots of traditional events in the Caneries which are still widely celebrated. Over here a lot of them have either died out or become no more than shopping opportunities.
