La Castanyada (Traditional Catalan Festival)



ready to have the chestnuts and the "panellets"

The 31st of October is the day of the dead people, and we celebrates Castanyada festival. Is a very old holiday and it's still alive despite the time. At school we celebrate it making 'panellets' (almond and sugar Catalan pastry) and we bake and eat chestnuts beacuse is a very ancient tradition.

panellets

The students of 6th grade wear a Castanyer/a custom (people who bake and sell chestnuts at street) and bring the chestnuts to the rest of students. And we prepare a Terror House, beacuse these days is usual to tell terrific legends and stories.
