Happy Spanish Mother’s day.
This weekend is off to a good start with Mayday celebrations, 1st May being a public holiday. Major festivities throughout the island, centred around public plazas, including crosses decorated with flowers (Cruces de Mayo), dancing and traditional costumes. Día de la Cruz is celebrated throughout the month. The squares and streets of the resorts will be adorned with beautiful crosses made out of flowers. There will also be many celebrations with people in traditional Canarian costumes dancing and singing. The 2nd is Mother’s Day in Spain so plenty to celebrate this weekend and don’t forget that at the end of the month it is Dia del Canarias when there will be singing, dancing and free food on offer.
When is there a month without some fiesta? On Fuerteventura you can find a party to celebrate almost any time of the year!!!

The current generation of teenagers is completely different from what has gone before. This is the ‘millennium generation’, born on or after the year 2000. For example, even as an adult I was shocked by the movies The Exorcist and Silence of The Lambs but many of these youngsters find both movies old-fashioned and tame. Hannibal Lecter they call ‘a gay’ and ‘a boring pussy’.
