trip navarra, olentzero

Olentzero is coming

In Navarra, as in other places of the world, December 24 night children await Santa Claus. But here, we have another “person” to visit us this night, he is called “Olentzero”.

This is a very old tradition, since before Christianism arrived to here, and although this tradition has suffered some evolution. It was a celebration for Winter Solstice, and with it the reborn of Nature and Sun. In fact, after Olentzero’s Parade, he used to be burnt as a representation of leave behind the past and be ready for the future. But with Christianism’s arrival, it was adapted as a messenger of Jesus birth.

Olentzero is a person who lives in the forests, doing vegetable charcoal in his lonely life in the mountains. He loves eating and drinking, and usually smokes a pipe, as we understand by his song (at the bottom).

Each Christmas, he descends into the village,  bringing presents for the good guys and charcoal for those with no such good behaviour.

 

Merry Christmas!!!!

 

 

Olentzero song

Olentzero joan zaigu
mendira lanera
intentzioarekin
ikatz egitera.
Aditu duenean
Jesus jaio dela
lasterka etorri da
berri ona ematera.

 

Horra! Horra!
Gure Olentzero!
Pipa hortzetan duela
eserita dago
kapoiak ere baditu
arraultzatxoekin
bihar meriendatzeko
botila ardoakin.
Olentzero buruhandia
entendimentuz jantzia
bart arratsian edan omen du
bost arruako sagia
ai urde tripahaundia

la,lara,lara ai urde tripahaundia

la,lara,lara,laralara

 

Olentzero’s gone to mountain for working,
with the intention of making charkcoal,
and as he heard Jesus is born
he get back running for telling the new.
Look at him!
There’s our Olentzero,
sitting with his smoking pipe;
he also has fowl and eggs for tea
with a bottle of wine tomorrow.

 

Olentzero is a big headed,
but he has understanding,
last night he drank a ten pounds wineskin.
Oh, you dirty fat belly man,
la,lara,lara
Oh, you dirty fat belly man,
la,lara,lara

Sept. 22nd, Cider day in Lekunberri

There will be a craft and food fair with a varied range. Also begin to uncork the bottles for tasting cider.
At noon there will be a demonstration of kirikoketa, a playful way to do the hard work of crushed apple.  Once broken the apple hitting by a club, will be passed to the press. Although cider juice must stay for 3 or 4 months for fermentation, tomorrow you can taste this apple juice.

On the other hand, in the morning can be seen over a dozen apple varieties Navarra and Gipuzkoa.

Artikutza, in Navarra, but belongs to San Sebastian

This heat invites us to stroll through chilly places like Artikutza, which is one of the rainiest places of the peninsula with over 2000 mm per year. And as you have maybe heard, this reservoir belongs to San Sebastian (not Gipuzkoa), who bought it in 1919 for 3,200,000 pesetas in order to supply water to the growing San Sebastián-Donostia.

But did you know there are two other reservoirs in Navarre, whose water is destined to the same end?

They are Añarbe and San Anton, both with more capacity than Artikutza and very close to it.
