Basque tradition, the coal
Olentzero, the legendary Basque coal down the mountain at the time of the winter solstice to announce the return of light ... a tradition celebrated here in the streets of Biarritz with the coal with black face featured on his horse wagon.
Olentzero, almost Sant Claus, according to legend, he gives gifts for good childen but coal for the others !
