AbstractThe Christmas period is probably one of the richest seasons as far as popular tradition in Spain. This study collects, analyzes, and classifies the testimonies of people about the experiences that have shaped the winter solstice historically. Discussion and conclusions reflect the importance of this form of cultural expression, which has been adopted by most of the Christian world in celebration of these holidays.
