Can anyone confirm that the date for 2008 Corpus Christi is May 22nd
and that this is the day Tossa has the Flower mats etc...
Already planning our 2008 visit so looks as though we will miss the flower mats again.!!!

We managed to see the Corpus Christi flowers etc. this year. Although we have seen it many times before, every time it has had a magical appeal to it. The small children walking through the flowers, boys in their Sunday best long trousers and the girls in long white dresses, all carrying either candles or lilies is very moving. I took quite a few photos which I have e-mailed to Sarah,so maybe she could make them available for you all to see, even if they are not as good as they could have been, with a better camera and a steadier hand

Most peculiar - Corpus Christi is on the 1st May 2008 in France.

If we stayed that long we'd need to get a work permit!
It's hard though, isn't it, to get to see all the great celebrations in Tossa? It'd be great to get everything in, like the Fisherman's breakfast, Corpus Christi, San Juan and San Pedro.
Oh well, keep buying the Lottery tickets...
PS Congrats on becoming a Platinum member! I'd better watch out otherwise you might catch up with me!!

Perhaps we should go to Tossa in May and stay until June for San Juan!!!

Yes you're right. As Easter is early next year (Easter Sunday is 23 March) that means Corpus Christi falls early too. It's always nine weeks after Maundy Thursday.
This is the day Tossa, and many other places throughout Spain, have the flower mats and the children make their First Holy Communion.
