During my more than 6 years living and traveling in Spain, the Catholic Church's spiritual influence prevails, especially during Holy Week (Samana Santa).
Since this is Christmas Day and I awoke to watch and listen to Spanish television's nativity concerts, I was imbued with many memories of my own childhood Christmas celebrations, including a family ritual we had: attending a candlelight church service.
I wish you all a loving and peaceful day. Please see ArtTraveler's videos at: http://bit.ly/h1vruw
