Olentzero and Mari Domingi 2x50g Set

(0 customer reviews)

6,60  IVA inc.

Olentzero and Mari Domingi are two mythical characters of the Basque Christmas tradition. They are in charge of announcing Christmas and handing out gifts to the children on the night of December 24. Both are represented in a pack of artisan nougat where Olentzero is the nougat from Jijona and Maridomingi is the nougat from Alicante, the most traditional ones.

The nougat inside Mari Domingi and Olentzero is exactly the same as the traditional 300g format but these artisan nougat portions are children’s favorites and they eat them very well thanks to their 50g format.

In addition to sweetening your home, these Olentzero and Mari Domingi figurines are perfect for decorating your home.

Detailed description of Olentzero and Mari Domingi 2x50g Set you can buy:

Olentzero and Mari Dominigi is a deep-rooted tradition in the Basque Country. From Turrones la Colmena we wanted to make a small tribute to these endearing characters that announce Christmas and bring gifts to the youngest.

Also known as the Basque Santa Claus, they have their origin, like many other traditions, in pagan rites.

Originally, an Olentzero was the log in the fireplace on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning, his ashes were scattered by the front door to protect the house for the next year. According to legend, the gentiles came down from the mountains warning of the arrival of Kixmi (Christ). Joining this mythological element with the tradition of the log and the fire, the figure of this character was born, personified as a Basque charcoal burner, described as a good-natured and somewhat mischievous guy.

Mari Domingi , on the other hand, represents femininity and the winter solstice. She is a shepherdess and farmer and has knowledge of astrology and medicinal plants.

Already in the 20th century, both the Olenchero and Mari Domingi took shape and became on the same level as other famous Christmas protagonists such as Santa Claus or Santa Claus. This custom can be seen in cities such as Bilbao, Donostia and Vitoria-Gasteiz. If you want to know more about this Basque Christmas tradition you can visit the following page:
