In October, the work crews in cities all over Spain start hanging the swooping Christmas lights. The Scoopettes love these lights, glittering, swaying in the wind, long trails of tiny lights swinging back and forth. We give this production a whopping Scoopometer 10. Be a voyeur this December with The Scoopettes for Christmas lights.

    I had a good look at the lights on the Ramblas on Friday – they are beautiful, as always, but the nativity thing in St. Jaume could be better. I think the best one ever had half a ton of sand and some Palm trees.

    Good point about the nativity scenes. They are always fun to check out on Pl. Sant Juame in Barcelona.
