Bless the budgies

1669597_1011886655492504_7310180987505654285_oA bit of a religious weekend for my cameras. On Saturday it is the arrival of the  mantle of Our Lady of the Pillar of Zaragoza. Then on Sunday, the blessing of the animals.

That is always worth seeing just for the variety of pets that people bring along. As you might expect, there will be dogs and cats but also various caged birds and maybe a snake or two brought along to be blessed. There will also be a raffle to win a pig.

I recall that it was a young trendy couple that won the pig one year. They were last seen making frantic phone calls to find some way they could house the young porker. I do not, repeat do not want to win a pig!!
