Olentzero doesn't come down the mountain every Christmas

Apparently, from trustworthy sources, he lives among us and the rest of the year he changes his smock for a spring’s jumper and a shirt in summer, wears pants or jeans, according to the occasion and leaves his beret in the right drawer of the living-room’s closet.

Apparently, from trustworthy sources, he lives among us and the rest of the year he changes his smock for a spring’s jumper and a shirt in summer, wears pants or jeans, according to the occasion and leaves his beret in the right drawer of the living-room’s closet.But that night Olentzero, becomes sad when he observes that father dressed up as he dresses every other day asking the kid to wear the beret he does not wear. Or even when a father pushes the kid to the front line to sing the songs he does not even know nor understands and feeling angry when the kid only wants to do as his “aita*” does. He is not surprised because he is there the whole year observing us but, nevertheless, feels sad.

And, even though, he understands the pain of people who are missing loved ones who are away or passed away, Olentzero suffers because the party should be for everybody and not used for what some people claim.Olentzero does not wish to be that gentleman dressed as a shepherd bringing presents. Olentzero wishes to be a festivity for everybody, people who dress up for that occasion with great pride, sharing a magic night-that perhaps will culminate with presents-but still, we love the uncle who lives far away even if he does not bring presents. Don’t we?

But, lets relax because Olentzero, like every other year, he will return from the mountains to celebrate with us the festivity.
