La Inmaculada Concepción

°
Today the Spaniards celebrate the day of 
Inmaculada Concepcíon.

The Immaculate Conception, according to the teaching of the Catholic Church,
 is the conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary free from original sin
by virtue of the foreseen merits of her son Jesus Christ.
(Thank you Wikipedia.)

So it means that there are two public holidays almost after each other,
on the 6th of December Spain celebrates the  
Día de la Constitución.

So on the 7th of December most people take a "puente".
also I had to visit Manacor to run some errands.


Christmas decoration in Manacor.
The second biggest city in Majorca.
Hm, looking forward to seeing th eXmas lights in Palma.


Around our holiday home it is very green.


This is my "Christmas cactus".


When my human visitors left this little kitten appeared.
But only twice.
I named her Tinttarella.


Mediterranian climate is mild, most insects carry on active life.


Hello, the water in the pool is not heated. 


Neighbours.


Black sheep of the family ...?


In the background that so typical stone wall.


Thank you so much Barbara for making this
Adventskranz.
Our first one in Dar Ahlam.


My human visitors also experienced all kinds of weather,
even hails!


Seen in the local supermarket: pig tails!


Always worth a visit: Cala Gat.


On the other side of the Cala Ratjada peninsula
the stormy Cala Lliteras, divers's bay.


My human visitors checking out the winterly Cala Aguilla.


Even in Artá you find enough sights for a quick visit of humans.


Saturday equal football, also in Spain.
Locals watching in the local bar.


And the human visitors always prefer these guys for dinner.
With loads of garlic.


Should it get too hot at dinner you can alway pick up 
some hails from the garden!
December in Majorca.


Meanwhile Frankfurt is getting some winter feeling.


This oriental lamp brings also some Xmas feeling,
thanks my dear Palma-connection!
