Nerja in May: A month of First Communions
Nerja is a fantastic place to be at any time of the year. I have said this many times and so, I’ll say it again. Each month brings something different and interesting.
We have just finished Semana Santa or ‘Holy Week’. So, the next big event (for some places) was the feast of San Marco. The villages head off into the countryside to have BBQ’s, feasts and a good time. All are made welcome.
April is gone and the month of May is upon us once more.
In Nerja, as in almost every town and village in Spain, children of the Catholic faith will make la Primera Comuniòn or first holy communion. Its a time for snow white dresses, lace veils for the girls along with white shoes and socks.
The boys will have a smart suit or crisp white shirt and trousers. Some may even have a uniform of sorts.
It is a time of great excitement, not just for the children and parents but for the whole community.
Spain is a predominantly Catholic country, so, May is a big month. Some of the communion parties are communal affairs, with some families sharing the big day. They will bloc-book a restaurant for this event, so, its always wise to check first if there is communion on before you decide to eat out.
Some people go way over the top. The holy communion is treated more like a lavish wedding. This is a sight to behold.
