In the past, in Leon and Asturias (two regions located in the Northwest of Spain), there was the custom of gathering around the fire at the end of the day to tell stories, chat and drink typical liquors while women spun the wool or, as we say here in these regions, filaban. From this word comes the name filandón, by which these meetings between neighbors, friends and family members were known. With the advent of the radio and television, the filandón was gradually disappearing. However, in the recent years many initiatives have been developed to recover this beautiful tradition.
