JANUARY I.W.S.G.

Happy New Year one and all:
I sincerely hope all goes well for you,
Especially if you've a new book to
Be published this year...including myself.

CHRISTMAS IN SPAIN:
Christmas is celebrated on Jan. 6th in Spain,
To coincide the arrival of the three wise men.
They exchange presents on this day.
I've wittnessed this myself it's wonderful I say.

On the eve before, big processions
Adorn the streets.
To the on lookers,
They throw many sweets.

To The Bitish Patriots,
They have two Christmas's in as many weeks.
It's a wonderful atmoshere I declare,
Happiness is all that people seek.

So to-day(Jan 6th)
My son will again celebrate with friends and co.
Then in a week's time,
He's off on holiday to Mexico.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND HOLIDAY JOHN.

  3. Two Christmas celebrations sounds like fun! I'm sure my grandkids would like that and I wish I was still with them. But it's home again in the California rain and cold--seems a bit out of character, but that's the weather report from L.A.

    I'm excited about your upcoming book release. Hope all goes well with it.

  4. Hi and Happy New Year!
    Yes, I know about January sixth in Spain. They have it also in Bavaria in Germany. Celebrating Christmas on January sixth takes place in most of the highly populated Catholic regions.

    I wish you all the best for 2016 in everything you undertake to do.
    Shalom,
    Patricia
