Will the tree fit?
Yes it fits ……. er almost!
This year I went to Puerto Pollensa for the start of the pine tree as you can see here.
Sorry no photos for this. I was singing in the church later and didn’t get any. At this moment I am watching the procession in Muro on Baleares TV.
It is incredible, most people are in traditional costumes walking with every type of animal you can imagine. Just saw a dog carrying two baskets with a rabbit in each. Flocks of sheep, geese herded by sheep dogs, pony and trap with kids in national costume sat in the trap.
There is always a wonderful atmosphere with this fiesta. For me this is the real Christmas. Merry Christmas and a Happy 2013 to you all. xx Lynn

As always this is a great event that lasts for a week, with the grand finally of the battle on the 2nd August. Here are some videos that hopefully give you the feel of the day.

The end at the football ground.
I am so glad I don’t have to wash all the Christians white clothes afterwards.
