Fallas is a traditional celebration held in commemoration of St. Joseph in Valencia, Spain. It is celebrated from the 15th to the 19th of March every year.
The term "Fallas" or in our local language "Falles" refers to both the celebration and the monuments created to be exposed and finally burned during this celebration.
There are a lot of traditions that I wanted to share with my first graders but I just shared the most important ones...
In the school we started searching about it and watching and printing photos of the most important customs and we did a big poster with pictures showing great moments.
After that we made "petardos" (Firecrackers) and we hanged them around the classroom.
And we did the "Presentation" in which each fallero receives its band among applause and hurrays.
