Christmas Stockings, and the Barcelona Boqueria Market

Barcelona Boqueria Market


As Christmas approaches, and I reminisce about the Christmases of my childhood, a prominent memory are the four stockings we found affixed to the wall on Christmas morning  (our home didn’t have a fireplace).

Try as I may, the only candy I can remember are those nauseating Santa marshmallow candies wrapped in tinfoil.  Remember those?

Now I suppose we had M&Ms, perhaps gumdrops, or maybe even those small holiday candy bars.  However, I simply don’t remember.  When I call my mom on Christmas Day, I’ll ask her.  She will remember.

I shot this photograph about three weeks ago when we were visiting the world-famous Boqueria Market in Madrid, Spain.  I’ll share more about this marketplace at another time, but our tour guide told us the Boqueria was voted the third-best market in the world.

Although I resisted the sugary temptation, I wondered how many Spanish boys and girls might be enjoying some of these marvelous candies on Christmas Day.  I know I imagined my own red stocking chocked full.

What kinds of candy did you find in your stocking on Christmas morning?
