We are invaded by 'galets'

         Every year for Christmas, the streets of Barcelona are invaded by huge pasta shells called 'galets'. Last weekend I saw them by the first time of the year, and they made me realice that I have to hurry up with my Christmas shopping! but you ar eprobably wandering why would they put pasta shells as a Christmas ornament?

          The reason of that is that this kind of pasta is used in one of the most typical Christmas recipes here in Catalonia, the galets soup! So don't be suprised if during this month, while you're walking around the city, you see some of this huge galets, it's not that we are obssesed with pasta, it's just an original way that we have to celebrate that Christmas is almost here!!!! 

During the night they use them as lamps, it actually looks really pretty with all the Cristmas lights!
