Las Manzanas de otono

September and October are the months when the North of Spain celebrates at the apple crop. There are plenty of festivals and everybody samples different ways of eating apples. The most popular with children is manzanas de caramelo, candied apples. The children had a go at caramelizing and decorating their own apples following their recipe in Spanish.

Este es mi amigo

Children learn to sing and dance to a song practising some salsa steps. In the words they practise greetings and introductions. Este es mi amigo, esta es mi amiga, vamosa bailar.
To celebrate this November festival, children roast sweet chestnuts and make an apple drink. Ancient to ancient beliefs chestnuts were the symbol of the soul. Each Chestnut eaten released a soul from purgatory.
