There are many festivals and festivities in Spain.
Millions of people from all over the world go to Spain to experience one of these festivals. One of the most famous is San Fermín in Pamplona, The La Tomatina tomato festival in Buñol, Valencia, the carnivals in the Canary Islands, the Fallas in Valencia and the Holy Week in Andalusia and Castile and León.
Spaniards are generally warm and friendly.
Spanish people always kiss each other on the cheeks to greet each other. It is still two kisses, and it takes place when you are introduced to someone, even if it is the first time you meet them. If the greeting is between two men, it's a thump on the back of a hand wave.
In Spain, the birthday boy (or girl) invites everyone else for a drink.
Spanish people tip, but not always and never very much. It may be standard in Anglophone countries to add ten per cent to your bill when served at a table, but Spaniards are happy to leave a few coins, and only if they consider the service exemplary.
Expressing surprise when someone in their 30s (or even 40s) tells you they still live with their mother is a very sure way of creating an awkward situation.
Close family ties, mama's cooking and a tradition of attending the local university instead of moving away mean that many Spaniards remain 'in the nest' much longer than their counterparts elsewhere.
