Hello! We are Anna Sevilla and Laura. We are girls from 6A class. We want to show you a tradicional holiday and festival from Badalona. Every May, 11th, on the Badalona’s beach we burn a paper devil. This is a very traditional family festival. We done it because in older times we think that to do this is very good to protect against bad things like diseases. Every year the devil is different. Maybe a policeman, a doctor, a thief, an animal… Then there is a big firework festival with different colours.

Hello, my name is Soufian. I want to tell you that this picture is about the Badalona’s devil party. This festival is one of May events in Badalona. It consists in burning a paper demon. Some children also do little demonds at home and at school and then put their little demons with the big devil to burn them together.
When devils are burning there is a big firecracker festival.
