This is Spain



Christmas in Spain

12 Videos about Spain in 12 Days for Christmas.

In 2013 a group of 12 writers and bloggers about Spain worked on a project to produce 12 videos for the 12 days of Christmas – that’s 12 x 12 videos – 144 videos about all aspects of Spain – just for you!

Firstly an overview of the project from Graham Hunt with the first video in a series of 12 about people who have come to Spain to live and work (My #WABAS12 project)

Next is the list of 12 videos from Debbie Jenkins at Native Spain

Below you will find a diverse range.

When I saw this recipe, originally using jam as the filling I couldn’t help but think how great it would be with traditional Christmas mince meat, so I tried it. Get a jar of your favourite shop-bought mince meat – or make your own (recipe coming soon).

If you love Christmas mince pies then you’ll love this new way of making them, with a Spanish twist!
