The traditional festival of L'Ereta puts an end to these Easter mini-vations

The traditional festival of L'Ereta puts an end to these Easter mini-vations

 

The Feast of L'Ereta is the culmination of these Easter mini-holidays. This celebration goes back a long way in time and is still maintained today, although the passing of the years is noticeable, as some of the traditions have evolved towards today's tastes, but the essence is still present. On Easter Monday, the residents of Finestrat gather at the Font del Molí, an enclosure located on the slopes of Puig Campana, to eat the Mona, a typical sweet from the province of Alicante, which is like a burnt bread with a boiled egg inside. The older ones say that before eating it, a small ritual was performed, which was accompanied by the phrase "ací em pica, ací em cou, ací em trenque la mona i ací em menge l'ou". That is, before taking the first bite, the egg was crushed in the nose of the person next to him. Nothing remains of this ceremony today, except the memory that has been passed down from father to son. What has remained is the party and the desire to have a good time.

This Easter Monday, April 1st, starting at 12 o'clock in the morning and at the Font del Molí, you will enjoy the best atmosphere and gastronomy. There will be bouncy castles for the little ones, musical entertainment with the banner and bar at popular prices, which will be in charge of the recently opened 2024 Festivities Commission, the El Bak barracks. This is how the festive day will go by during the day and, around 6:00 p.m., it will be extended with a DJ.

Yesterday and today sweets have played a very important role in the day of L'Ereta. In addition to eating the Mona, in the past there were stalls with nougat and peladillas. It was one of the few days of the year when you could indulge in something special, and since it was spring, it was used to entertain the suitors. It is said that some years the competition was so great that the groom with the most purchasing power even bought the entire stall, leaving the others "composed and without a girlfriend". From all this ritual, the cupcakes have remained, which continue to maintain the prominence of yesteryear.

The monas and pastries of Easter Monday can be bought at the Nou Dolç, on Carrer Nou, 22.
