Castanyada/Panellets Workshop

Instead of frightening kids, Catalans celebrate the night of the Hallows eating (not really a surprise). The tradition is to eat roasted chestnuts (castanyes), that was a traditional offering to the dead before Roman times.

In addition of roasting and eating chestnuts, is will be also a workshop to confection panellets, a tasty threat made of almond paste and pine nuts, traditional for the feast of All Saints (Nov 1st).

Come to celebrate with the Casal these traditions next Sunday October 29 at 3832 West 10th Ave, Vancouver read more »

Fall get-together and Catalan independence referendum

Will be at Lower Hume Park (New Westminster) starting at noon.

This get together will have the added bonus of following in real time what is happening in Catalonia. If politics are not discussed in polite company, then we are not polite!. Please bring your opinions and your contribution to the pot-luck. Heated discussions are encourage only limited by good will and a dash of self-deprecating humor. If the YES wins, we will celebrate madly. If it is a NO, then we will need to party to forget our sorrows.

And there will be activities for kids, so you can forget about them while discussing the benefits of an independent Catalonia or the status quo inside the Spanish monarchy. read more »
