San Vicente Ferrer
Hey Valencia, we get it. You love fiestas.
Party Time (source)
We thought it was over after Fallas but, nope, we had forgotten about the rest of the Easter Week festivities. And now this Monday — almost like a sick joke — comes another holiday, this time to celebrate San Vicente Ferrer, the patron saint of Valencia. I give up.
Will there be…
- Parades? Check!
- Stores closed? Check!
- Quasi-Christian processions and holy images? Check, check!
- Mascletàs? Sadly, no.
- But orphans recreating San Vicente’s “miracles” on stage? CHECK!
So, fine, let’s just get it over with. And then please… no more fiestas. It’s enough, seriously.
