It is all about him, San Jose. He is our local saint and usually lives quietly in the little capilla in Mer (Sober).
Once a year at least Mer in Sober is not sobrio (sober in english is sobrio).
Once a year the saint is aired, but before this happenes the wifes are let out out to support the besoms in street cleaning.
Naturally this is critically observed and commented on by the local gentry.
And, like in real life, no sooner has everything been cleaned and sparkles, the sheep (or kids) come through……..
When the saints go marching on………..
I think this picture says it all
