What I Learned: Week 12

  1. Spanish people don’t know why we celebrate Thanksgiving.
  2. Spain has begun to “celebrate” Black Friday.
  3. Christmas decorations begin to appear just after Halloween.
  4. People in Spain don’t really celebrate Christmas with Santa Claus, but say that the Reyes Magos (we would say the Wise Men or Three Kings) bring the presents.
  5. …but Santa has become popular recently with kids.
  6. Spaniards will look at you strangely for wearing shorts to run in November even if it’s warm out.
  7. Tortilla de Patatas can be made with potato chips if you don’t want to chop the potatoes.
