Answer one winter question or more!

Posted on: December 4, 2008

Badalona, we know your winter isn’t white.

So, you can’t answer a few questions.

What about Paralia in Greece? Do you have snow in winter?

Do you prefer winter or summer? Why?

What are your favourite winter activities?

Can you tell me about the time you went skiing or skating?

What do you usually wear in winter?

When do your winter holidays usually start and end?

Can you think of three holidays in winter?

Here we don’t have snow. Sometimes, one year beetwen 10, our little Badalona’s mountains, (about 342 mts), get a little snow.
We prefers summer. Mediterranian sea is very hot. In june water is about 22ºC. In August maybe 25º. We can go to beach, and swim in the sea, from the end of May to the first weeks of October. But it’s hot. Some days about 40ºC. The sun is dangerous. You can take sun protection cream to go to the beach. About 30 protection factor or more. We do the “siesta”. (We sleep about one hour before have lunch, from 16:00 to 17:00) You can’t go to street at 16:00. It’s too hot. So we enjoy summer nigths. We go walk, talk or dance until 12:00 or more.
In winter we go to beach to play with sand. We do sand castles. Winter mornings are very wonderful at Mediterranean sea rivers. The sun is powerful here. We are at 18º at noon. We walk, ride bike, run or have “vermouth”: some “tapas”. (Little aperitives like olives, fried potatoes, anchovy… and we got some white wine or beer, sitting in a bar or snack in a boulevard near the sea.
We don’t go very often to sky. Few times on winter. It’s difficult because the snow is in the mountains. Big mountains are far away from us. We go skiing to “Pirineus” Mountains. These mountains are very big, (about 3404 mts). They are beetwen Spain and France. You can see it on the map. These mountains are like Alps, Carpatians… But they are about 150 kms from Badalona to “Pirineus”. A lot of people don’t know how to sky. I only have skied two times in my life. We don’t skate on ice. We play skateboard.
In winter we usually wear a t-shirt, or shirt, and a jersey. Today in Badalona the max. temperature was 17º, and the min. was 10º.
Our winter holidays begins on december 19th and ends at january 8th.
We celebrate Christmas december 25th, St. Esteve december 26th, new year and epiphany, january 6th. Our children gets presents on january 6th from the holy magic kings.
Greetings from Badalona.
