Crafty in the Med

I am here to enjoy meeting other bloggers and to share my love of craft ,mostly crochet, my thoughts and my daily happenings here in Alicante,Spain, my adopted country. I belong to a local choir because singing and music makes me happy. Flea markets and book shops are two of my favourite places to be. I read lots......sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I walk and walk and walk for about 10 months per year during the hot months I swim.

  1. Strange....
    Father's Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating
    fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.
    In Catholic Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 (St. Joseph's Day)
    since the Middle Ages. This celebration was brought by the Spanish and
    Portuguese to Latin America, where March 19 is often still used for it....
    It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly
    in the months of March, April and June....
    In the UK it is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June...!

  2. Well said Willie. It is a national fiesta day here and I delight in seeing so many families out getting together to celebrate this day. It so good to see how united families are in this country and the care and respect they hold for their parents and grandparents. keep well xx

  3. Our Father's Day in the USA is in June.. it's always a good time to celebrate the men who made us possible and those who care for us. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
