Some spanish traditions

Piñatas - you may have already seen cardboard piñatas decorated in brightly colored paper-mâché at childrens’ birthday parties. Blindfolded participants try to hit the piñata with a stick, to break it open and spill out fruits, candies, and other treats hidden inside.
In Spanish-speaking countries, Carnival celebrations are held between late January to early March, the time leading up to Lent. A wild week can also be spent in San Sebastian during February, when La Tamburrada takes place. Fiesta are "Las Fallas de San José" in Valencia, in March, when all the city becomes the scenery of an enormous party with lots of good mood and excellent fireworks. Carnival is popular in all the country, the best is in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Best known among Spain’s folkloristic traditions are certainly Flamenco and bullfights. Madrid has its Fiesta, "San Isidro", in May. If you like bullfights, don’t miss it. Flamenco, on the other hand, is the musical tradition in the country’s south, in particular in Andalusia. In April takes place Feria de Abril, in Seville, an entire week of singing and dancing. Another most popular event of religious origin is El Rocio, a traditional pilgimship to the village El Rocio Foto in the province of Huelva, in May.
For girls in Hispanic countries, the 15th birthday signifies a coming of age. The family throws a big party, called a Quinceañera, which begins with a Misa de acción de gracias, or giving thanks for completing childhood.
Nochebuena (“the Good Night”/Christmas Eve) is a family event, celebrated with a feast.
