Carrying fiery sparklers above their heads, children march through the streets. Drummers drum a repetitive cadence as they trudge through the Gothic quarter on their way to the steps of the cathedral. When I saw this for the first time, I thought of how I couldn't imagine any parent I know in America letting their 6-year-old put a firecracker or sparkler on his or her head and dance through the streets. But that is one of the reasons why I love Barcelona so much; those crazy Catalans.
