Communion in an Old Cortijo

Last Sunday, we celebrated our niece´s communion in a very old cortijo (Andalusian country house). It was more of a tradition than a religious event, and a really good excuse for a reunion. We are such a large family that we only get together on special occcasions. The more reason to treasure the warmth and joy of each others company.
El domingo pasado celebramos la comunión de nuestra sobrina en un antiguo cortijo. Fue más un evento tradicional que religioso y una muy buena excusa para reunirnos.
Siendo una familia tan numerosa sólo nos juntamos en ocasiones especiales. Mucha más razón para disfrutar de la calidez y alegría de la compañía mutua.

    ResponderEliminar
  112. How wonderful! I love the place where you had the party. It's like something out of a fairytale!

    I still remember my first communion. I loved my white dress and veil. I felt like a princess. My daughter wasn't so excited. It was a really hot day and she couldn't wait to take her dress off and change into a sundress. There had been a big party the night before and everyone was hung over (not me), so I was kind of irritated. My son will have his first communion next year and I'm hoping to have a big party. I think it's fun and important to get together and celebrate family traditions, whatever one feels about religion.

    Love,
    Heather
