...because this is what christmas sounds like...

... a couple of days before Christmas, I wandered into my favourite church and this... unexpected and beautiful...

... because of the Fira de Santa Llúcia...

...has been held in the Avenue of the Cathedral since 1786.  A fair that sells 'Nativity Scenes and Christmas Traditions', which include many versions of the kooky 'cagatio', the smiling log under which the gifts of Christmas appear on Dia de Los Reyes, 6 January. A place to find the Christmas spirit.

...because now I have my own christmas lights!

...and now, I will just wait for the presents to appear under it!

... because Barcelona goes organic...

...and a little bit of New York comes to Barcelona.  A restaurant, with a DJ on Sundays, organic groceries and an extensive menu of delicious ecológico food made at different stations throughout the place.  Fun and healthy... even the wine is organic (although I am not sure if that makes it healthy?!)

....because the little green fairy is here ...

... in a little bar in Barceloneta called Absenthe. This cosy bar is filled with various bottles of her potent green temptation,   while the fairy hovers overhead waiting and watching. Personally, I prefer a wine...and luckily they serve that too!

...and the city lights up...

 Christmas cheer! (with no sign of crisis in the christmas lights). There is a magical glow throughout the city...Barcelona is even more besotting!
