La Albehaca

This festivity has a nocturnal character and consists of the meeting of all the boys in town looking for the best pots of flowers on the balconies in town, taking the best bunches of flowers.

The boys will afterwards show them on their chests or behind the ears. For this to be possible, the single women in town must care of the flowers during the year being very important for them to have the most beautiful ones so that they could eventually gain any kind of compliments from the young boys who chose their flowers as the most beautiful ones.

The celebration is accompanied by the sounds of the tambourines and bagpipes, which more and more animates the mood, as the celebration lasts all night long. The town called "Aceitunilla" is the one elected for the celebration with the name "The theft of the Albehaca"./p>
