A sign of the times

When we first lived here, the Fiesta at Holy Cross was a highlight of the May calendar. On the Saturday night there was a big party with entertainment and a bar. Then on the Sunday, there was a grand paella to savour. In between was the Holy Mass on Sunday morning.

It wasn’t the free food though that appealed most to me, it was the beautiful floral crosses that people adorned their houses with. The main cross was always the star attraction but then there were over a dozen smaller crosses to see as well. They used to hold a competition for the best with prizes but not any more. Yesterday, I only spotted two crosses on the street going down from the park to the town where previously there would be at least six or seven. Still a great effort and the main cross looked magnificent as ever.
