Andalusia Day   Leave a comment

28 February

Andalusia Day, (“Día de Andalucía”) is a modern holiday celebrated in the Andalusia region on the southern coast of Spain each year on the 28th of February. Many things that are seen as being Spanish — such as flamenco dancing, bullfighting, and gazpacho — are actually from Andalusia.
Seville is the capital of the Andalusia region. Within the region, there are eight provinces (Almeria, Cadiz, Córdoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Málaga, and Seville) of which Córdoba, Granada and Seville are well-known at least by name outside of Spain.
The founder of Andalucían nationalism was Blas Infante, who wrote the lyrics for the regional anthem and created the Andalusian flag. The Spanish constitution recognizes Andulusian as a nationality; in fact, though, many cultures went into the making of Andulusia, including Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Visigoths.
On this day in Andalusia, banks are closed, as well as most shops. Restaurants will still be open, though, and trains and buses still run.
School kids make flags; teachers make sure children know the words to the regional anthem
On the last day of school before the holiday, many schools serve children a free Andalusian breakfast (“desayuno andaluz”), which is “tostada con aceite”, a toasted pitufo or mollete bun, sprinkled with olive oil, sometimes with Tomato Triturado (finely chopped tomato), and occasionally, garnished with thin Iberian ham slices as well. You may be given a garlic clove to rub on the bread before the olive oil. Adults usually have coffee with this traditional breakfast, but children are given hot chocolate.
