Here is another crazy tradition of Barcelona: The Christmas Day harbour swim Again this year - on Christmas day -  hundreds of brave men (and women) will dive into the freezing sea in Barcelona's port at la Rambla del Mar. Having a swim in the around 13 degrees cold water sounds quite crazy - but it is one of Barcelona's oldest sporting traditions (and also one of the oldest in whole Europe). Every year on the 25th of December a 200 m open water swimming race takes place in the harbour of Barcelona, called "Copa Nadal". christmas_swim_barcelona (more...)

... AND SUMMER FINALLY CAME

summer-solstice

 

Today, June 20th, is astronomically the last day of spring. 
Tomorrow, June 21st, summer is going to start officially.

Solstice can be definied as the astronomical phenomenon for which it is named, which is readily observable by anyone on Earth: a "sun-standing." Since long time, Summer Solstice was celebrated by people all over the world.

It is said a perfect moment to through away old things and start a totally new season. Obviously, it could be taken literally or metaphorically. The point is during this week rubbish bins are full of everything. Anyway, solstice celebrations, even if really similar into each others, take place on different days depending on the region or the country. Starting today, they go on until June 24th, St John's day.
 

bonfire-san-juan

In Spain this is actually a real important appointment: la fiesta de San Juan. The night of 23 of June is the shortest of the year in the northern hemisphere and basically means the triumph of light over dark. The basic characteristics of these rituals are fire, water and sun. Legend says the bonfires that burn on this night can cure diseases of the skin and cleanse the body and soul. One can even change a bad year into a good one simply by jumping over the bonfire a minimum of three times.
 

san-juan-BARCELONA

If you are in Barcelona, well the party is assured! Actually Sant Joan (catalan version) is one of the craziest and funniest day in the whole year! Who has never been here in this days, can't imagine how many people are around down the street, the squares, the beach. You won't need to find the right place, because everywhere people will be partying.

Bonfires are lit in the streets or on the sand of the beaches, the rituals are jumping over the fire, touch the water that is blessed in the night or asking for some wishes. Special meals are also served on this occasion: coca, a kind of sweet bread with jam of fruit on top, will be sold everywhere.

The traditional way to celebrate Sant Joan Barcelona is on the beach: chiringuitos turn up the music and DJs and bands play during the night. Many people arrive to the beach at sunset time with drinks and food, and spend all the night enjoyng together. Really easy to get new friends, jumping to a bonfire to the other!

barcelona-san-juan

Remember to write down your porpouses for the new season starting to burn into the bonfire. And obviously wear the swim suite because at midnight everybody is going to jump waves! Traditions are tradicions.
