We celebrated “The castanyada in the school”. He had a lot of fun! Now we are going to explain what “La Castanyada” is and why is so important to us.
La Castanyada is a Catalan festival originally celebrated on Tots Sants or All Saints' Day on November 1st. On Castanyada day the central event is a meal consisting of roast chestnuts, marzipan cakes known as panallets, sweet potatoes and candied fruit and the traditional drink for La Castanyada is Catalan moscatell sweet wine.
