Christmas in Spain

3rd December 2014

Christmas in Spain is very different to England.

Some of the main differences are:

  • They celebrate the winter solstice on the 21st of December. On that day they jump over a fire to protect themselves from any illnesses.

  • On Christmas Day they have their Christmas dinner after midnight and it is turkey and truffles. Their Christmas is more about seeing friends and family than getting presents.

  • On the 28th of December it is innocent’s day, and they play practical jokes on friends and family.

  • On January 6th they celebrate the three king’s day. The children leave shoes on their windowsill filled with straw and carrot for the donkey. In the morning the kings have left a present in their shoe.

My top 5 rides at Disneyland Paris



21st November 2014

We went to Disneyland Paris in October this year. These are my top picks for the best rides and fun there.

  1. Space mountain mission 2

I loved it because it was extremely fast and I think we did loop the loops!!!!!! It was hard to tell because it was completely dark.

  1. Haunted house

I enjoyed the haunted house because there was a skeleton and he was taking his hat off but he took his hat off with his head!!!

  1. Dumbo planes

I enjoyed the Dumbo planes because I got to make the Dumbo go up and down!

  1. Teacups

I enjoyed he teacups because they went all over the place!!!

  1. Buzz Lightyear laser blast

I enjoyed the Buzz Lightyear laser blast because I got to spin the carriage around and shoot the targets.

There were probably better rides, but we didn’t get to go on many because the queues were really long. We will go back next year and try some more.
