Unusual "Lunes de Aguas"
In this article, you can read about its origin and all its traditions:
Lunes de Aguas in Salamanca
This year, we have celebrated it on 20th April. It has been a Lunes de Aguas completely different. A celebration in the midst of confinement because of the coronavirus, a situation that has paralysed the whole world.
But here in Salamanca, people have a lot of creativity and they have decided to enjoy this Lunes de Aguas from home.
On the one hand, the city council organised a programme of activities that took place from 12.00 (noon) to around 20:30. There were very different activities to choose from: traditional games, storytellers for kids, narrations by the performers Fernando Saldaña and Noelia González (both from Salamanca)… and it all ended with the teachers from the Municipal School of Music playing the song Resistiré.
All these events were streamed live via the City Council Youtube channel and they are now available in that platform.
Furthermore, many citizens took a picture celebrating this day at home and published it on social media with the hashtag #tuhornazomejorencasa.
Another initiative has been the hashtag #balcornazo (a word formed by balcony and hornazo), suggested by the association Fevesa in order to encourage everyone to eat hornazo at their balcony or window.
Esta vez, se ha celebrado este 20 de abril. Ha sido un Lunes de Aguas completamente diferente al resto. Una festividad en medio del confinamiento por el coronavirus, situación que ha paralizado al mundo entero.
