Fiesta de San Nicolás de Bari o del obispillo

Safe, Basque Euzkadi, Spain

No Title
On the Sunday nearest St. Nicholas Day, the chosen six-year-old boy goes to the church where the priest blesses him at the altar of Saint Nicholas. Then the young bishop rides to the convent on a small native horse. Then he distributes apples, chestnuts, and other fruits and nuts—though some might prefer caramels and candies.
