Hogueras 2009. Some Details.







Some details of the Hoguera yesterday.
In the first image, Obama as King of Chess (or king of the WhiteHouse). The text says: When Obama moves a piece, the world becomes absorbed, then the play is called, giving the King castling short.
Second image: science is under attack by religion.
Third image: Hogueras also have its children version. It is also burned on the night of San Juan.
Another reason that I like going to this event (Alicante is about 80 km from Murcia) is to celebrate the day of San Juan because it is celebrated my name, which is also the name of my son.
If you click on the image you can see more details.

Really, they are so beautiful I don't know how you can burn them!

This is an amazing festival. In Espana festivals are always fantastic events for families especially and Hogueras is no exception.
Yesterday I commented on the night of San Juan in Irlanda, it is said the celebrations predate Christian times and it was originally a Pagan festival, but that the early church recognized the importance of maintaining traditions and adopted it as the night of San Juan (Oíche fheil Eoin in Gaeilge/Irish)
