Can you see the smile of the sky?
Can you...

From April 30th to May 1st is the tradition put in front of the house broom, genista flowers, which also gives the name of "Maias", flowers of May. At least this is the tradition in some parts of Portugal.By superstition or simply by tradition,you can see the doors and windows adorned with bouquet of "Maias". It is said that the origins of this tradition is linked to the fertility rites of spring and beginning of the new season, but there are those who say that removes the bad-and witches looked at the house.
