Like some other posts above, this was purchasd yesterday, but I’m posting again here because I can’t resist noting that 2024 marks a Golden Anniversary. My love affair with Nightcap is now entering its 50th year.
Gentlemen, I say this to all of you who have already made a purchase, it is only a matter of you writing down this expense in your 2024 account book.
Now a little bit of history...please forgive me
In Spain St. Claus is more for children, it is a custom "imported" from USA that is celebrated a few years ago.
When I was a child only the Three Kings (Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar) came to bring us gifts on the night of January 5 to 6, on that night all the towns of Spain celebrate the "Cabalgata de Reyes" and we all expected to receive our gifts with illusion.
Nowadays, children are given presents on Christmas Eve as St. Claus (Papa Noel in Spain) and also on Epiphany. Adults still get presents for this magical night for us, from January 5th to 6th.
