San Jose is Spanish for St Joseph, and St Joseph was Jeses’s earthly father, so Spanish father’s day is held on St Joseph’s day (March 17th) and the village of San José has a fiesta. On the Sunday after the 17th, they have a wheelbarrow race. Each couple gets timed as they hop in sacks to the wheelbarrows;
…slalom to the first stand where they put lipstick on each other while blindfolded;
…pour water from one cup to another, while blindfolded, without using hands;
… feed each other whipped cream while blindfolded;
…put a nappy on the one in the wheelbarrow, using plenty of talc;
… go over the sea-saw;
…collect an egg to be carried in a spoon held in the mouth;
… eat the egg at the next stop, and then dash for the finish line.
Of course the fastest couple around the track are the winners. Thw two adult winners were clearly delighted.
