Las Fallas 2017 are here. Valencia has opened the month of March, as every year, with its biggest party. For a few days now, Valencians - and people from all over Spain and the world - have been celebrating the festival of fire and gunpowder.
There are fallas for all tastes and colors. As every year, Fallas organizations have worked in ninots to criticize our politicians and give an ironic and acid touch to the present. Next Sunday, March 19 , the day of San José, the biggest festival will be celebrated and the fallas will disappear under burning, as tradition dictates.
Today we want to share with you a few memes so that you can send to your friends and family through WhatsApp. So, in addition to celebrating, you have a good laugh. Be careful, Chuck Norris is coming this year too.
The mascletás are a good time to unleash our frustrations. In the midst of so much noise, nothing like a few screams. No one will notice and you will be more comfortable than a bush.
If you are from Valencia or have ever visited the city in full swing, you will know that traveling through the capital of Las Fallas is a real impossible. Hence, not even the fantastic car is capable of reaching Michael without suffering the inconvenience of Valencian traffic. What are you going to do, you will have to walk.
This scientist cat always surprises us with his jokes and memes. This is a meme for Valencian alchemists. In case you did not pass chemistry or have a fish memory, valences are the ability of an element to combine , which is measured by the number of hydrogen, chlorine or potassium atoms. And so far today's chemistry lesson.
Valencians are very proud of their failures. And is not for less. Hence, the gunpowder is sacred. Perhaps they are also a bit exaggerated. The mascletás are a completely deafening roar that can leave your eardrums to shreds. Here in Beijing and in Pokon.
Attention modern fallers . You have to tweet the mascletás yes or yes. Don't you know how to do it? Well, very easy: #Booom # Ta-ta-ta-PAM! Taca-taca-taca-BOOOOOOM #Shiiiiiuuuu And so on until a long list of onomatopoeias with designation of origin. 100% valence.
Those of us who are not Valencians ask ourselves this year after year. How is it possible that such beautiful fallas, made with so much effort throughout the year, have to be burned as the end of the party? There is no shame that is worth it. Tradition rules and you have to set fire to these endearing figures . But isn't it heartbreaking?
The one with the black smoke has been one of the biggest mysteries of the hit series Lost. Although today it is no longer a current series, it is clear that the smoke that was seen on that island came from the burning of the faults. Or not?
Taking a place in the fallas of Valencia is like taking it in the Sanfermines. We are talking about absolutely crowded parties, in which finding a good view is practically impossible. People crowd together from the very first hour in the morning to see the show up close, so getting a seat and having a good view will make you feel practically like a real God.
For many years, Valencia has been mired in an environment of pure corruption. Its politicians have not been exactly what can be called exemplary, so in many cases, the failures and the smoke have been a metaphor for the smoke screens that have been run over the most notorious media, political and social scandals of some governments.
